If anaconda is doing the update here, I guess it is because anaconda in 
4.x does not have raid10 personality support. The raid10 personality is 
NOT the same as nested raid1+0. It is an entirely new module from Neil 
Brown that has a poor choice of a name imho. It does things very 
differently from what you expect from a nested raid1+0 array.
