Hardware RAID support

Hello !

It would be great if, when composing a machine, I could configure the disk layout up to the hardware RAID level.

Today I have to either do it in the “BIOS” configuration, or I have to commission a server with “Do not power on and allow SSH”, then ssh in, install the RAID software, configure the RAID, and re-commission so that MAAS can see the new disks.

Also, today, a disk that shows up as simply “sda” on MAAS could very well a RAID5 hardware array or anything really.

It would be great if MAAS could expose the hardware RAID disk configuration (perhaps this would be a first phase), and then allow you to modify it.

Thanks !
