i've got similar issue since kernel 2.6.27-6 (intrepid beta), 2.6.27-5 works fine (this is the one i currently use).
my system is an acer 9814 featuring an intel mobo, kubuntu is 64-bit edition. i have a fakeraid 2-disk setup with stripped / and mirrored /home.

waiting longer or setting longer boot delay doesn't work for me.
traditional "kernel alive, kernel really alive" message is not displayed
either. i just end up with the initramfs shell with an error message
saying that my /dev/mapper/my_root_raid_partition_here is not found ;
the only workaround i found is booting kernel 2.6.27-5.

this computer has been using ubuntu since edgy (6.10) mostly with 32-bit editions, and no raid. i never came across this issue before.
i gave a try to opensuse 11.0 (which actually is how i set up my raid configuration) and didn't have this issue either.

i'm not sure if my issue is actually related to this bug, but if it is,
something must have changed between kernels 2.6.27-5 and 2.6.27-7 and
this "something" could be the cause of my issue.
