Wrong. -stable does support it. You have to use "atacontrol" to create RAID 
(for mirror e.g: 'atacontrol create RAID1 ad4 ad6' 'atacontrol status ar0')
Rebuilding is a bit complex. You have to do a 'atacontrol detach 
and 'atacontrol attach "channelOfTheFailedDrive"' then 'atacontrol rebuild 

Of course also 5.x supports the 0680!

Why do you post such answers? It's wrong!
