mdadm bulit with uClibc always fail on '--assemble --scan' (-1 EINVAL (Invalid argument)), the glibc one works.

As far as I see you do not ship static mdadm, the apk contain shared one 
and mini.iso don't have mdadm in initramfs at all

anyway, I just replaced aboriginal with rootfs image from buildroot and 
mdadm *works*. Now I would like to debug it, as the problem is with the 
kernel arguments, maybe the headers are to blame? I will need to do a 
lot of testing.

Thanks anyway.
