With FreeBSD 6 getting closer, I was curious about what was
happening with raid 5 support on ata-raid.
At present, raid 5 arrays are detected and can be used, though looking
at the code, there is no support for parity. Hence running raid 5 is
effectively running raid 0.
If this is likely to be the case when 6 is shipped, there should at
least be a warning regarding this at boot time.
