One costly approach would be to try retrieving the last Megabyte off of
the end of each device in your RAID set plus the size in sectors of each
involved device. BIOS properties for the device woud help to.
But this would be just a metadata sample involving painfull reengineering
rather than basing a format handler on vendor specs which is the preferred
way to go. That's what my quote below was aiming at.
