At least Ingo has made a raid patch for 2.2.18pre13, which patches for
pre15 also, w/ 1 reject (makefile - EXTRAVERSION = pre13 + ...
pre13-RAID). Patch is named: raid-2.2.18-A1

Actually I also use the ide patch w/ this kernel, the latest from bkz:
This one patches w/ ~6 rejects, I run through them, the changes do not
affect my setup (1 in the arm-asm subtree, two ALi chipset, one rz1000

The right order to patch: 2.2.17 + ide + pre-patch + raid (I also use USB,
but finally it's merged ;)

The really important question is if pre-patch-2.2.18-15.bz2 contains any
pieces to stop 'VM: try_to_free_memory_failed for XXX messages' coming,
and temporarily freezing the box? (whilst they are coming, nothing else
