On another note, my understanding is that the official Sun sold
and supported SSD for the x4540 is basically just an OEM'd Intel X25- E. Did Sun install their own fixed firmware on their version of that drive, or does it have the same buggy firmware as the street version? It would be
funny if you guys were shipping a drive with buggy firmware that just
happens to work because the x4540 hardware doesn't trip over the one
invalid byte :)...

The X4540 uses SAS, not SATA. So the translation via SATL is done in hardware, not software.
