Post install the linux kernel fails to boot the ARC-1224 raid controller (stalling kernel boot as it fails to mount drives), I'm going to assume that ARC-12x4 are all affected and possibly the ARC-12x6 series (most recent).
I've attached a dump of the controller failure in logs.It should be noted that this was an upgraded from kernel 5.15.10, so its possible this broke before 5.17. I have downgraded my kernel back to 5.15.10 (and 5.10.14) and
controller still works after attempting the upgrade to 5.17, so this should at least confirm its a kernel issue. As far as I know the modules for the areca cards are built into the kernels, there should be no third-party
installations required.

I may have to upstream this somewhere else... but I've used this companies cards for years and they generally just work...

This task depends upon

This appears to be an upstream issue [1]. There's not much we can do on the Arch side so will close for now.
