I would say that this is a kernel bug. Whether or not there's kernel support
for your particular RAID setup (my guess is loading the correct module after
boot would make it work), your kernel really *should* boot no matter what.
When we start using a newer kernel, the problem may go away. Do you happen to
know what particular kernel feature you need enabled for Linux to recognize your
hardware RAID stuff?
