        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.  ;-)
