That's strange that it isn't reported as a 'kernel' message.  The 'raid'
filter seems to assume that.  Unfortunately, with messages related to
'raid*' and 'md*' those are a lot of "services" to match for.

I actually had thought about writing a filter to parse /proc/mdstat and
report any errors.  But I have limited data to work with... here is what
mine says:

# cat /proc/mdstat
Personalities : [raid5]
read_ahead 1024 sectors
md0 : active raid5 sdd1[2] sde1[1] sdc1[0]
      97691008 blocks level 5, 32k chunk, algorithm 2 [3/3] [UUU]

unused devices: <none>
