I also got this in doing LVM & RAID. But I *am* doing software RAID. I'm
pretty sure you can still do the alias trick even if you're doing
software RAID. I did this three months ago, and have had no problems
whatsoever. However, I do not know what it means or if it's an actual
problem with anything. And google was not my friend.
