The raid code doesn't have to be compiled in, it can be modularized in
an initrd image. So long as grub can load the kernel and the initrd
image, you're good to go with whatever modules you want in the initrd
image. I believe current versions of grub can do raid0 and raid5 now,
but, well, you know, test it first ~:^)
