Compaq Integrated SmartArray Quantum DLT4000

Hi All,

I'm running several Compaq Proliant DL360 servers, all with FBSD

One of these has an internal Quantum DLT 4000 (that's how the
BIOS identifies it) tape drive. I need to use it, but can find
no evidence of this hardware in the dmesg output. I've googled
around and really all I can locate are references to CAM, the
aacp driver compiled in the kernel, and device.hints. Can
someone put this all together for me? I'm not a newbie, have
compiled many kernels and worlds, and have been a FBSD user for
several years.

Here is the dmesg output for this machine, which contains the
above DLT Tape Drive connected to its embedded controller. The
machine also has the standard SmartArray 3200 controller which
is managing RAID drive volumes.

The system sees the integrated controller and uses ida0 to id
it, but does not see the tape drive.
