I've successfully ' -xr ... distribution' on/for a i386
machine (of) today (Oct 24th) and installed kernel, userland and new
'boot blocks' (mbr, bootxx_ffsv1, boot) on this machine. All
mounted/used partitions of this machine are RAID1 based, and booting
from the RAID1 based /-partition worked fine formerly.

But not with today's -current distribution!

After some tests with older 'boot block' parts it turned out that the
actual bootxx_ffsv1 seems no longer capable of booting from RAID1
partitions. Replacing it with a version compiled on Oct 19th makes the
machine booting from the RAID1 partition again.

Can anybody confirm this misbehavior?
