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.
