Actually support for all those ATA/SCSI software RAIDs, as well as 
Vinum, should be collapsed into a set of GEOM modules. And no, I am not 
volunteering. ;)

Vinum work is under way, as long as I know, it should not be too hard to 
add appropriate code to read RAID configuration not from disk, but from 
appropriate ATA or SCSI controller.
