We are using a patch from Kenneth Vestergaard Schmidt which appears to
be a different patch than the one created from Jan Rybensky. (perhaps
these guys should have worked together :-)
We are successfully running this on 4.10R on a few machines, but as with
Jan's patch this does not address all the issues. Specifically
re-synchronizing takes days and disk performance is noticeably reduced
during re-syncing. However once the mirror is synchronized performance
is great and the driver has been extremely stable without any issues to
The mpt driver needs a new maintainer. I would love to see this driver
finished and fully support thie LSI 1030 in IM mode. I would even pay
to get someone to complete this and have it committed to future releases
of FreeBSD. (anyone interested?).
I've not tried this patch against 5.3, however it applies cleanly to 4.9
