Tested with various drives connected as slaves (in addidion to the two 400GB
Samsungs). Seems like any drive that can't do UDMA fails (looks like MWDMA is
broken). The controller BIOS creates the array fine but it doesn't work in
Linux. In smart mode, it fails to identify (this is probably the same problem
as with any other RAID array):

When I force the pass-through mode, it oopses (haven't captured it yet as it's
too long). Forcing pass-through mode works fine with UDMA-capable drives:

pata_it821x: forcing bypass mode.

Then I created RAID 1 from the Seagate and Quantum drives. No matter if the
rebuild process is running or not, the result is the same - the drives that
form RAID aren't accessible, the other drives work:

(the secondary slave is missing - interesting)
