Dear Nikolas Britton,
Sorry I had new arcmsr driver version 1.20.00.13 for FreeBSD i386/amd64/ppc
This version add ARECA new generation RAID adapters ( SATA / SAS ) into
Its xfer rate more than 800MB/sec.
I need more time to test arcmsr on PowerMac G5 even SPARC machine in my Lab.
Any comments and opinion with this driver will win acceptance.
