Post md device renamed into md126 [solved]
In my opinion, the most annoying things in sysrescue are two:

1) you cannot choose your shell with command parameters
2) auto detection of md array is causing renaming of md to number starting from 126 (md0 -> md126, md1 -> md127, etc) and so on.

For first problem i haven't yet write a line of code, but i isolate the second one.
The problem is md is trying to name md with hostname (ex: sysrescue:0) and give number md126; and it will not be a such problem if md preferred super-minor will not be override. Istead it is, and it gives boot problems after reboot in normal system without sysrescue.
The "patch" is not very refined, but is a point of start.

in the ramdisk (initram.igz) in the init file:

--- init.orig   2012-04-18 09:38:34.000000000 +0200
+++ init   2012-04-13 18:43:14.000000000 +0200

Some users complained like me in the forum for this behaviour, then think about inclusion.
