SubjectRAID modules and CONFIG_AUTODETECT_RAID
Date
From
In 2.2.x we were able to build a kernel with RAID modules and have it 
autodetect RAID partitions at boot time - so we could use raid root partitions.

In 2.40 the configuration option CONFIG_AUTODETECT_RAID is explicitly disabled
unless at least one RAID module is built into the kernel. I presume there is
a good reason for this and that it's not just a mistake.

Are there any plans to re-enable this feature? It would be nice to be able to
have a single kernel for all our machines without having to have RAID in the
kernel when it isn't needed.
