I noticed that the recent compaq proliant server
are using some unrecognized scsi RAID controllers apparently
under the {name|standard} CISS (Command Interface for SCSI-3 Support).

do you know if there is any projects (already started)
or plan to support "ciss" devices like :

(according to bsdi/fbsd ciss(4) manpages)

      Compaq Smart Array 5300
      Compaq Smart Array 532
      Compaq Smart Array 5i
      HP Smart Array 5312
      HP Smart Array 6i
      HP Smart Array 641
      HP Smart Array 642
      HP Smart Array 6400
      HP Smart Array 6400 EM
      (... may be others new/futur RAID chips)

on netbsd 2.0 in the near future ?
