controller chips supported by the
driver can be found onboard on many systems including:
- Dell PowerEdge 1750 thru 2850
- IBM eServer xSeries 335
These systems also contain Integrated RAID Mirroring and Integrated
RAID Mirroring Enhanced which this driver also supports.
controller chips are also present on many new AMD/Opteron based systems,
like the Sun 4100.
Note that this controller can drive both SAS and SATA
drives or a mix of them at the same time. The Integrated RAID Mirroring
available for these controllers is poorly supported at best.

This driver also supports target mode for Fibre Channel cards.
This support may be enabled by setting the desired role of the core via
the LSI Logic firmware utility that establishes what roles the card
can take on - no separate compilation is required.
