So the HP DL320G4 servers come with a similar LSI Logic SAS
controller. In 6.2-RELEASE was seeing the same issue;
The fix I found was a firmware update from HP HP Firmware Update 7.6.0 .
After applied the mpt messages went away .
I beelive this is a bug in the LSI firmware more then the FreeBSD OS, as
this controller has been very odd regardless of what os I am running on it.
