What do you mean exactly with "working RAID"? If you had any problem with
stock 2.2.x linear/raid0/raid1 I'd like to know the details. linear and
raid0 are trivial and if they doesn't work for you, it's probably a silly
bug that can be fixed with a few liner patch. raid1 is more complex (and
oom deadlock prone) but it happens to work too here.

There is longstanding raid5 bug report while rebuilding the parity after
adding a spare drive to a degraded array (I assumed also reproduced with
latest raid patches applied). The raid5 report cames from Lance so if
there were any news that I missed please let me know. Thanks!
