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.
