what about making port for Mylex RAID controllers - replacing standard
flash binary.

Mylex has StrongARM (or XScale in ExtremeRAID models), two PCI buses on
internal there are from 1 to 3 SCSI chips (symbios on what i've seen,
don't know what on FC versions), secondary is for connecting with
computer. everything basically standard, in fact it's all already
supported in NetBSD (not sure about PCI bridge in StrongARM versions).

running server on Mylex put on passive PCI backplane with ethernet adapted
sound interesting IMHO.

Instead of asking why a piece of software is using "1970s technology,"
start asking why software is ignoring 30 years of accumulated wisdom.
