The "onboard" RAID controllers are more or less a marketing gag. Almost
all the functionality still has to be implemented in the drivers, they
don't offer the performance of real RAID controllers nor the ability to
use e.g. battery buffered write caches. In short, they don't offer over
ccd or vinum.
