Adding BIOS driver for this screws things up.
And the scam is adding this to mobo features as a "RAID" and an attempt
to make this pass as if it was a hardware RAID.
GRUB currently considers mdX as a non-available through BIOS unless user
overrides it in, we need to add a logic to handle the
fakeraid as a BIOS disk.
It's possible to add support for intel RAID but it will be useless since
the member disks aren't available through BIOS to begin with.
