After kernel recompile and reboot, the /proc/mdstat file should be available and showing that you have 2 RAID “personalities” available: [raid0] and [raid1].  You could choose to install RAID support as modules, but since you're going to be using it all the time, it makes no difference if you include it in the kernel, as I did above.
