[wishlist] Request to support software raid devices

Bug Description

As OEM projects had a task of Intel VROC support, the one of targets is to install customized desktop on VROC RAID devices. I found that current casper can't support it with latest code:


    # or do the scan of block devices
    for sysblock in $(echo /sys/block/* | tr ' ' '\n' | egrep -v "/(loop|ram|fd|md)"); do
        devname=$(sys2dev "${sysblock}")

Also, I knew that the previous bug (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/casper/+bug/63398) mentioned that the similar request, however, if mdadm can be seeded into https://code.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-core-dev/ubuntu-seeds/+git/, then can we make casper work with md?
