I think you're right that they don't.

The command interface appears to be common among all the models (that we
work with so far, at least); why have additional adapter "types"?

I'll look at the change.  Thank you for finding it!

can get my hands on some.  The only SAS RAID hardware I have is LSI,
which I am not personally too fond of.
