how 'supported' are 3ware Escalade controllers?

I'm speccing a budget RAID fileserver, and stumbled across some
interesting prospects.

This page describes a eight-channel ATA RAID card, the 7506-8:


This page says there is support for other cards in this family, but
doesn't explicitly cite the 7506-8, and cites some firmwar issues:


The manpage for the driver itself seems prety broad:


Can someone explicitly tie these references together?  Is the 7506-8
going to cut it?

Of course, I'm open to any anti-recommendations WRT this card, as
well, so feel free to chuck me any feedback...
