that is what i tought, see my previous msg
but the scan is done in user space, i was asking if some
kernel space solution existed/was planned/has any sense

what i want to do is have both raid and LVM work and be autodetected
at boot even if both are compiled as modules.
why would i want to do this?
Distributions, i would like both raid and lvm to become
a standard part of all linux distributions.

i hope that there will be some improvements in
boot loaders, so we can avoid the small bios addressable
partition, and completely avoid the idiotic pc partitioning
cheme.

Luca
