This is an LSI controller which does RAID 5 but uses the mpt driver?

That sounds very odd to me.  What I have seen, though, are LSI controllers
which use mpt if an optional RAID module is not present or not in use, but
mfi -- the driver for "MegaRAID SAS" -- otherwise.

The mfi driver has some nasty bugs.
