I'd say preroot is better than preboot for sure.  I think I still like
offroot more than preroot though.

For what it's worth, as a moderately experienced user rather than an expert like you guys, I'd vote for this - I nearly suggested something like this earlier in the thread, but didn't because I thought I must have misunderstood, but Doug's explanation has just confirmed that I had it right in the first place - the mdmon invoked with --this-new-option is started from the initrd, in advance of the real root filesystem being mounted, but hangs around until after the real root filesystem has gone again, so that for example --postroot would make just as much sense as --preroot, and neither is as good as --offroot.

Cheers,

John.
