The binary driver version is 2.0.7-1 x64 b11518 is what you have I
assume. Which is accdu if you do load it.
6.2's driver is version 2.0.0-1 (aac)
Xin's patch is to bring the aac driver up to version 2.0.7-1.
Here is a copy from my dmesg:
--- snip ---
aac0: <Adaptec SCSI RAID 2130S> mem
0xfc600000-0xfc7fffff,0xfc5ff000-0xfc5fffff irq 24 at device 1.0 on pci2
aac0: New comm. interface enabled
aac0: Adaptec Raid Controller 2.0.7-1
aacp0: <SCSI Passthrough Bus> on aac0
--- snip ---
I am using his patch currently testing the card. Other then the bug I
have mentioned in this thread, it has been stable for me. Note: I use
i386 so I haven't tested this under amd64 (yet).

The patch Xin listed above is strictly for the driver and not the aacli.

Unfortunately for me in my testing my 2130S just does not work with aaccli.
If you need help in patching let me know.
