Last time I fiddled around with the LSI MegaRAID stack it did not provide 
any sort of transparent access to attached devices.  Can you create a LUN 
with the tape device?  

You might have more success with the LSI MPT stack.  That at least 
provides transparent access to the target devices.  I don't know whether 
mpt hooks into NetBSD's scsipi layer in a way that it will attach non-disk 
devices, but I suspect it would.
