Bug#514665: lvm2: Wrong Dependency on mdadm in LSB header

Package: lvm2
Version: 2.02.39-6
Severity: normal

Testing the dependency based boot sequence with insserv I found a minor
issue in the init.d script for lvm2. The "Should-Start" includes "mdadm"
instead of "mdadm-raid" and the Should-Stop does not include
"mdadm-raid" at all. While I did not see any problems during boot, I
noticed that during shutdown mdadm-raid is run BEFORE lvm2 which fails
since lvm2 VGs are still active. Adding mdadm-raid to Should-Stop:
in lvm2 takes care of this problem.
