If dmesg doesn't show it, then they must be still working on
object/container detection code within that particular driver.  Therefore,
you *trust* the controller to doing all the raid for you - which it is
undoubtly doing according to your BIOS.

Since the driver isn't mature yet, and there's ptobably no monitoring
utilities out yet, you won't be able to see what's really going on at the
physical level.

You should have to resort back to software raid - the controller should
still be doing the raid for you.
