     (bsc#966773, bsc#1020405)
   - Fix "Insufficient head-space for reshape" error. (bsc#953595)
   - Do not assign numbers to missing raid disks when printing information to
     avoid duplication and confusion. (bsc#1047183)

     large minor numbers. This affects systems with more than 128 MD arrays.
