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
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.
