Debian Stretch comes with a old version of megaraid_sas (v6.x) which does not
the last raid controller from DELL (e.g. H740p). We known several workarounds:
- using the kernel from backports
- using the dkms driver provided by DELL
- manually recompile our own kernel (as a Debian package or not)
however, we have a cluster of such machines where users are able to
their own environment (including the OS). Being able to use the plain Debian
on this hardware would be great.
Do you know if a backport of the megaraid_sas driver in the 4.9 kernel
can be expected?
PS: I removed the generated kernel info as my current machine is irrelevant for
