The two links below mention the same problems of partitions over dm:
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=107383495031133
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=107384987212233

And here two links for partitions over md:
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=107401984323154
http://lkml.org/lkml/2003/11/13/182
And the patch to do partitions over md:
http://cgi.cse.unsw.edu.au/~neilb/patches/linux-devel/2.5/2004-02-03:03/006MdPartition

(Related to the problem mentioned earlier in this thread)
Christophe Saout seems to already have some prototype to handle ATARAID
devices in general:
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=linux-kernel&m=107652932411321

Now the question is: How do we fit all of this together?
