: DM RAID superblock must record device role
 
Record the role of a device for a RAID array in the superblock.

The role, or position in the array, of each device must be recorded in
its superblock. This is to help with fault handling, array reshaping,
and sanity checks. RAID 4/5/6 devices must be loaded in a specific order;
in this way, the 'array_position' field helps validate the correctness
of the mapping description (aka, the CTR table). It can be used during
reshaping to identify which devices are added/removed. Fault handling is
not possible without this field. For example, when a device fails it is
recorded in the superblock. If this is a RAID1 device and the offending
device is removed from the array, there must be a way during subsequent
array assembly to determine that the failed device was the one removed.
This is done by the correlation of the 'array_position' field and the
bit-field variable 'failed_devices'.
