There is actually not much to change if you hack for you only. I
considered making dbootstrap support RAID, but you need
- additional setup tool included in dbootstrap and/or libfdisk
- mdadm (about 50kB on root-fs)
- a kernel with SoftRAID. Would need about 150kB. Which drivers do you
want to drop today?
