Going after the "mpt0: Unknown async event: 0xb" dmesg entry, I find a

#define MPI_EVENT_INTEGRATED_RAID	(0x0000000B)

in sys/dev/ic/mpt_mptlib.h that is not handled in the switch 
statement in mpt_netbsd.c::mpt_event_notify_reply(). AFAICS, the 
FreeBSD code doesn't do that, either.

The linux 2.6.11.xx drivers/message/fusion/mptscsih.c, OTOH, handles 
the event. Not that I'd understand what the code does, though.
