Agreed. We can also detect 'umounted, but configured md devices' with
the output of mount(8) and a list mentioned above.

It maybe a stupid question (sorry I have few knowledge about kernel
internal)... Can't we add a space for filename in the structure
of md device?
It would be wonderful if 'mdconfig -l' says:
unit mounted type option
0 /tmp malloc -s=65535,reserve
1 none file /home/matusita/fdimage
2 none swap none
or something like that. If we have a configulation file for mdconfig(8),
this output will be the same of its file format.
