I'd recommend against that controller. I am not even entirely sure
it will work with the aac driver (that driver has needed an update
for a long, long time). If you're willing to settle for a controller
without online managment tools for NetBSD (also true of the Adaptec)
you might consider the LSI MegaRAID instead -- the 150-4, 150-6, or
