You can't dump to a raid partition, because raidframe requires process
scheduling. Dumping to one partition of a real drive should work, though.
What I usually do is setup a partition on one of the hard drive which has
the raid1, matching the swap partition on the raid1 (you have to do some
maths do find the exact place on the physical disk) and set the dump partition
to this.
