There is indeed a bug in the amr RAID driver, though I haven't seen your 
particular symptoms.  I have a patch to work around the bug, but it only
helps if you have an installed system and can compile a kernel.  I'm 
considering building an unofficial 6.0-RELEASE with the patch so that
people with this problem can try it out.
