No problems, I have only one RAID set per drive (the raid is eventually
partitionned). Hum, there's doesn't seem to be a way to do the parity rewrite
in baground, other than starting 'raidctl -P' in backgroud. Did I miss
something ?

An equivalent of 'fsck -a' for all configured raid sets would be cool :)
