My understanding is that regular vinum won't work on 5.x, you
need geom-vinum for that. Recent postings from Søren have lead me to
believe that none of the ataraid stuff works with 5.x, either -- you
can use them as plain ATA controllers, but the RAID stuff has not yet
been worked out.
That takes us back down to geom-vinum, geom-stripe, perhaps some
SCSI RAID controllers which aren't affected by any of the ATA stuff,
and maybe ccd.
