Thanks a lot to all of you who have responded, it is really a big help!

Edmund, would you mind sharing your tweaks in /kernel/drv/scsi_vhci.conf?
Being able to control the LEDs could be really useful - what do you use
for doing that (I guess luxadm is not the choice any more :-)?)?

It sounds like LSI 9205 is a good choice then. Is there any special
firmware version(s) to hunt for and/or beware of?

Again, thanks all of you for your help!
