Ship mdadm-shutdown.service and suggest dracut-core.
Users of systemd with rootfs on Intel Matrix Raid and DDF external metadata-raid arrays that require mdmon monitoring, may wish to install dracut-core package and enable mdadm-shutdown.service. This will create a shutdown initramfs, that systemd-shutdown can pivot to. This may result in an improved shutdown behaviour with less hangs and synced raid arrays. The generated initramfs will takeover mdmon monitoring, wait for the arrays to be clean before stopping them and unmounting everything and finally executing requested shutdown command.
