    This is caused by the following in drivers/md/Kconfig:

    menuconfig MD
    bool "Multiple devices driver support (RAID and LVM)"
    depends on BLOCK
    select ASYNC_TX_DMA
    Support multiple physical spindles through a single logical device.
    Required for RAID and logical volume management.

    ASYNC_TX_DMA is defined in drivers/dma/Kconfig, which has

    menu "DMA Engine support"
    depends on !S390

    but unfortunately ASYNC_TX_DMA depends neither on the menu nor
    on !S390. (I think it was just an unknown symbol on s390 before
    Martin's Kconfig rework, so I could build older -mm kernels.)

    Currently, the only md stuff depending on ASYNC_TX_DMA is MD_RAID456
    (which means it doesn't work on s390 anymore, which is bad enough).
    With the select statement, no md stuff can be build on s390 at all (and
    I really don't see why ASYNC_TX_DMA should be forced upon all md
