Contributing hardware to the cluster increases the range of platforms
that FreeBSD committers can test on. I can't speak to whom or to what
to contribute money - that really depends on your perceived needs.
4GB / 8GB qlogic fibre channel support is actually on its way,
although I don't know the date.
