I'm glad it is working well for you!  You can do larger I/O sizes with the
Adaptec by changing your MAXPHYS and DFLTPHYS values in your kernel config
file.  e.g.:

options         MAXPHYS=(1024*1024)
options         DFLTPHYS=(1024*1024)

If you set those values larger, you won't be able to do more than 132K with
the sym(4) driver on an x86 box.  (It limits the maximum I/O size to 33
segments * PAGE_SIZE.)

That looks cool. :)  I'm not a ports committer, but hopefully one of them
will pick it up.
