Fasttrack TX2 - Raid10, dmsetup table example?

You have two full RAID0 arrays now. hda/hdb is one stripe, hdc/hdd is the
other. You could also use hda/hdd or hdc/hdb, though, since the two stripes
are identical.

This probably doesn't help you get your array recognized by dmraid, but you
should be able to plug either half into just about any Promise raid
controller and have it be recognized as a degraded array. Rebuilding on that
should convert it from a degraded RAID10 to a functional RAID0, with no loss
of data. You will also have another untouched degraded array half with all
the data, just in case.

This is probably all stuff you already knew, but I hope something in here is
