I'm curious -- what kinds of cards are supported by this routine?
Does this include the DPT SmartRAID V, as well as the older SmartRAID
IV? I've got an anonymous ftp server I need to rebuild -- it had
previously been running Slackware Linux, but as the kernel got
updated, the source for the driver didn't, so I scrapped it and am
rebuilding with FreeBSD.
Anyway, my thought was actually to scrap the DPT card (because it
was my understanding that the FreeBSD drivers for the SmartRAID V
were only "beta" quality), and simply use vinum instead. However, if
this card is better supported than I first thought, then I'll be glad
to keep it. ;-)
