I assume the chipset of the RAID controller isn't supported.  I don't
know how hard that would be to do - it's worth figuring out what it
is, and seeing if there's any existing work out there that could be
adopted by $not_me.

I can boot the system fine when there is no volume configured, but then it appears to be diskless. As soon as I configure volumes, the kernel throws an error message very early on, and as the system immediately reboots, I can’t even say what the message contains.
