This looks like the use I have at work. I'm using a dual-Xeon server
(8 cores) with LSI logic SCSI adapters and 2 SCSI/SATA RAID array
(I moved to external SATA RAID array with SCSI connectivity some
years ago). As I don't trust the SATA RAID array that much,
they are in raidframe RAID-1 :)
The server is running 5.1_STABLE of a few months back. I upgraded
several times to get bug fixes.

Some of these problems may be fixed in 5.1_STABLE.
