Is there a neat way to get start the partitions and get them mounted in
this setup?  I have a server on which I want to create /dev/md0 from two
iscsi partitions.  I then want to export /md0 to other servers using

Do I have to hand-craft my own scripts to start the md devices at boot
time and get the filesystems mounted before starting GFS, or is there
already a way to do that?  (I don't have a problem with doing so, but
if there's already a "right" way to do it...)
