Except that the individual ataraid modules (hptraid.o, medley.o et al.) are
no longer used in 2.6 - dmraid covers them all. I don't think dm-mod is
actually necessary to identify and read from the arrays; if so it would not
need including in the initrd. What would be necessary is the dmraid -s -c
command to identify the array(s), then some kind of scripting to use
/dev/mapper/<raid-device> (or maybe such device would then be found/used

I hope that makes sense. The more you learn, the more you realise you don't
