Helping to fix the driver is a thing that Tim is in the unusual situation to
be able to do as he has access to the affected hardware.

However, if paid work demands a quicker solution, I'm hoping they'll fund
use of the SAS 3G card (cheap) whilst allowing Tim to occasionally work with
the SAS 6G card to work on a final solution!

Ideally we don't want Tim to have to move away from FreeBSD. We want him to
help fix the driver.
