It finds the RAID controller fine. However, we're very concerned about
the lack of a management CLI like ports/sysutils/megarc.
It's the DRAC5 virtual USB keyboard that requires you sacrifice your
moral integrity to obtain. A small price to pay, considering the client
requires ActiveX and Java.
Also I had some problems with if_bce.c < rev1.7. Media state confusion.
