Just a "headsup" that -current now supports kernel core dumps to
RAID 1 sets. Like any regular swap partition, if your swap is
on RAID 1 and is large enough, you don't need a separate dump device
to be configured. In the unfortunate event that your kernel crashes
and you have a RAID 1 set configured as your dump device, the dumping
and savecore operations now work with the raid(4) device.
(And no, there are no plans to support anything other than
RAID 1 sets. :) )
