(On three, cue the users..)

Ah, no. The 2105S is definitely not in the real RAID class. If it was really
all that good, other folks would be using it. For that matter, if it was any
good, Tyan would be using it on the S4882 instead of the LSI 53c1030 mpt(4)
with PCI-X Ultra320-0 amr(4) ZCR.

Either way, I recall Scott saying not too long ago, "asr(4) needs fixed on
amd64. Can anyone step up to fix it?" and being greeted with a chorus of
crickets. In other words, there is a shortage of people with the time and/or
resources to get this done, and I wouldn't expect to see any change in that
any time soon.
