That's not quite true. Most of the proprietary "BIOS RAID" (aka
ata-RAID, fake RAID etc.) formats have been supported for quite a long
time now by the dmraid project:


Some of the formats (as is the case with Intel ISW on F13) are now using
MD RAID but it's been quite a while since you had to use non-standard
proprietary drivers or kernel modules to use these things.
