OK, you are right.  raidctl could probably be taught to DTRT here;
perhaps via a new command line option to make it treat errors in the
same way that autoconfiguration treats errors (ignore missing disks,
mark disks as failed if their modification count is too low but
everything else is OK).

BTW, autoconfiguration doesn't work with recursive RAID-on-RAID, so I
don't think we can remove the boot-time "raidctl -c" commands.
