If can find it, if anyone wants it. It would probably need some work for
2.6, but that should be easy.

Irelevant since Debian kernels don't use kernel autodetect
anyway. Only works if raid is compiled in, not as module.

The partitioner in debian-installer does look at the partition type to determine whether or not to load partman-md. And since it's a fresh partition that's been created there's no md signature to detect.
