If I build an MD raid0 with a non power of 2 chunk size, it appears

work correctly.   This is kernel 3.18.9.


That looks more like a blkid or udev problem. try using blkid -p so
that it doesn't look up the cache but directly probes devices for
the signatures. strace might tell you a bit more, too. And if the
filesystem mounts, then it definitely isn't an XFS problem ;)

Thats the thing, it didn't mount, even when I used the device name directly.

Good point on stracing though. I'll do that tomorrow and report back. Thanks!
