I just hot swapped all (including boot and swap!) the drives out of my
F10 server for an upgrade.  I used the raid tools to cleanly fail and
remove the drive, then just pulled them out.  The syslog showed them
hardware-failing.  Then I plugged the new ones in.  The syslog showed
them being detected.  fdisk, raid add, done!

This was with the sata_mv driver, rocketraid 1820a card.
