The speed is meaningless in hardware RAID mode. Its also btw usually
faster (except for some cases of RAID1 with high PCI bus utilisation like
video capture boxes) in non RAID mode ;)

I'll have a poke at that, see if I can make it lie more meaningfully

as it does here.

IT821x does not support the HPA in 'raid' mode, only in non RAID mode so
it would complain about the HPA.

Ok that is a bug I've not met. What firmware revision is this and does it
work after the rebuild is done ?

It seems to have decided to be indefinitely busy from that.
