It sure existed! That is the reason I updated to STABLE in the first
place. My plan was:

1. Install minimal system from CD (4.10) - I did that and the problem
   was there with the GENERIC kernel.

2. Overwrite this with the contents of a disk that runs -STABLE.
   I did that as well but the problem did not go away.

So I compiled a kernel with support for "amr" but that does not
solve it as well.

It's important to say that I have two disks on this hardware, running
as two individual virtual disks in RAID 0. (This is my first hardware
with RAID anyway, so I must say I am not any familiar with RAID).

May I please take a look at your dmesg output??

What is that "branded card"?
