interrupts per second is probably not due to the SuperMicro AOC-USAS2-L8i.
Since moving the SATA 3 disk to the onboard Intel SATA 2 controller I'm no
longer having that disk evicted from the raidz2 pool with write errors and
I thought that the high interrupt rate issue had also been solved but it's
This is on 8-STABLE at revision 230921 (before the new driver hit 8-STABLE).
So now I need to go back to trying to determine what the cause is.
I'll stop posting in this thread as I don't think it's anything to do with
either the old or new version of this driver.
