I'm sure the bootloader will do the right things... but I know right
now that the RAIDframe code will have problems. It may be the case
that RAIDframe will work if / is a RAID set and the module is never
unloaded. In short, however, the RAIDframe code was never designed to
work as a module, and so it will need fixing in order to make it work in
all cases.. (e.g. after module unloading and reloading, a situation
which is not going to work at all in RAIDframe right now..)
