Add GEOM_RAID to GENERIC?

The only argument that stopped me is that GEOM_RAID is more active in
probing for metadata then ataraid. Now it tastes all 6 formats on every
provider in system. ataraid tasted only first level and subset of formats
depending on controller vendor. While it is possible to do the same, I am
not sure it should be done.
But may be that all is not really a problem. Most users won't notice few
extra requests unless something happen like disk failure, that can make
boot to take much longer.
