You're right. The driver doesn't report the rebuild state.

Coupled with a simple perl script which periodically calls amrstat
on all volumes, it has been proved very useful by the past.

However, under heavy I/O load, the amr driver returns meaningful
information. This is the reason why amrstat.c make a few attempts.
Since this is only to send a mail for an alert, We ignore these
"false positive".
