I now have a raid 0 as you do, and a raid 1. By comparison, I gather
that the clean bit only applies to the raid 1. After a power failure,
the raid 1 comes up "not clean" until parity is rewritten, and then
afterwards it's OK. This makes sense. It's the raid 0 case that needs

Perhaps `raidctl -i', on a raid type 0, should simply set the clean
bit in the underlying partitions and return without error?
