My educated GUESS here is that the mdadm array will come up fine, and
you are screwed with the hardware raid.
AFAIK hardware raid arrays require the OEM controller to recover the
data as they all use proprietary formats.
That being said, I ASSUME there are other brands and models of board
using the same controller, but I have no idea which ones.
Why not boot a live CD and see what it finds?
