Well the other reason to break fastrak raid support is that it's harmful. Slowing down disk access
while making youself beholden to proprietary firmware is just not a winning combination.
Backstory: promise makes "fake raid" controllers that do a poorer job than the linux builtin software
raid. They are notable for having many more bugs than linux softraid, being marketed
misleadingly, and damaging performance in most use cases.
