Bug#143151: boot-floppies: should detect 'Linux raid autodetect' as 'Linux native'

Of course, it is intended to work on pure Linux partitions or
working alternatives.

Why do you _need_ this? If you change the partition type, you must know
what you are on doing. If you want to install on a Raid system, you
should use a flavor with md-supporting kernel.
