I hope your working with ps on this since a bunch of us have various
patches etc. to the amr driver floating around.  He (er. Yahoo seems
to be keeper of the various bits).  I'm tracking our own, LSI, Yahoo's
and at times FreeBSD.

A few us have Dell PE2850 family.  However, a bunch of us have limited 
time.  My focus is in FreeBSD 4.X with some dabbling in 6/-current.
