the kernel raid subsystem can (and usually does by default) mark each
disk in a raid group do you don't have to worry about the order.  i
think they call it persusten superblocks or something.

if you have those the order of the disks is decided by the kernel upon
reading these not from /etc/mdtab or whatever the file used is

it should also be possible to poke about at the end of the disk(s) and
read this data i assume
