Is it the case the kernel doesn't have the necessary IDs in place to "bind" the controller in RAID mode and if so couldn't someone who wanted a life of pain add the ids to their custom kernel such that it did bind to the AHCI driver? While you would never be able to read disks formatted with the true RAID format would it at least allow you to talk to the disks?
