I've got 860, 1435, 1600, 1950, 2950 all running 6.2-relelase-p7 with
custom kernels.

Watch out though the RAID-1 write speed on w/ FreeBSD is known to be
pathetically the worst thing ever with this raid card:
SAS 5IR internal RAID adapter, PCI-Express
Read speed seems fine though.

mpt0: MPI Version=
da0 at mpt0 bus 0 target 0 lun 0
da0: <Dell VIRTUAL DISK 1028> Fixed Direct Access SCSI-5 device
da0: 300.000MB/s transfers, Tagged Queueing Enabled
da0: 237464MB (486326272 512 byte sectors: 255H 63S/T 30272C)

My other RAID cards doing RAID0, RAID5, and RAID1+0 are all stellar.
