Thanks for the suggestions...

I had some hope for SMART tools, but it looks like the Intel SRCS28X is 
unsupported (or any Intel boards at the moment).

Also, /proc/mdstat gives absolutely nothing, besides
Personalities :
unused devices: <none>

I'm pretty surprised that their is no way of monitoring this though...
