The raid array starts fine and /proc/mdstat reports everything OK

Just done that.
It's asked me the fs type and I've entered the one you told me. It
seemed to work. I ran --rebuild-tree after that and it started replaying
the journal - which it had not done before - but then it still died with
"wrong superblock". The exact message is:
init_source_bitmap: bitmap 0 (of 6450048 bits) is wrong - make all
blocks [0-32768] as used
init_control_bitmap: wrong super block
I guess I made things worse with my initial attempt as rebuilding the
