Adaptec has deprecated aaccli, and it turns out it doesn't work with
their recent drivers (which are in 6.3 and 7.0).  I still need to get
this indicated in the port.

The driver in 7.0 and 6.3 should provide the same support as Adaptec's
precompiled kernel modules.  Please let me know if this isn't the case.

There is a problem with arcconf that causes it to hang after producing
its expected output.  Adaptec is aware of the issue, but has been very
slow in responding.
