I think maybe Michael can post a short note in -stable@ or somewhere 
indicating the following information:

  - The FreeBSD version that your product is based on;
  - The pciconf -l output (I think grep ^none would be enough; if it was 
probed as mpt(4) then we will need to know what problem it reported)

There are a lot of improvements in recent FreeBSD releases.  I have some 
Dell 1950 boxes running and it uses:

mpt0 at pci0:1:0:0:        class=0x010000 card=0x1f101028 chip=0x00581000 
rev=0x08 hdr=0x00

And works just fine.  It would be good if we can know more details (i.e. 
release you are using, the hardware, etc) so we will be able to figure 
out a better solution.
