I obviously don't agree with you on that. In my expirience a cheap
RAID-Controller is in the end more costly than a good/expensive one. For
this reason I settled with SW-Raid (for low-end testing, deployment
testing, crash-recovery testing, ...) where no good Controller is
covered by the budget.
SW-Raid is well tested and supported OOTB by the Linux-Kernel.
I don't see any big problems in adding mdadm to the initrd except for
the kernel-package itself. Up to this point I didn't manage to build
an unmodified (!) pve-kernel-package.
I understand there will be a release this week, so I would appreciate
the next kernel-source-package to be more buildable (and/or instructions
to set up a working build-environment).
