The mfi driver on the LSI web page supports the 9240, whereas the stock 
FreeBSD mfi driver does not.  The LSI driver breaks mfiutil however, so make 
sure you have megacli or the like working.

Xin Li is looking at merging support for the 9240 into FreeBSD mfi, but the 
two have diverged so it's not a slam-dunk.
