As far as I can remember you couldn't compile the drive statically in
the kernel - probably due to licensing issues.
I should be possible to put into the '/boot' directory on a floppy and
load it during the setup process (i.e. preload modules from floppy).

I just took a look at the files I got from LSI (who now own AMI) and the
driver is half GPL, half proprietary.

Quoting megaide-shimdriver-readme.txt:
LSI Logic's Shim driver has its raid intelligence as binary file
megaide_lib.o and the rest of the driver is open. megaide_lib.o can be
build with the open source to get driver image megaide.o.
