Now that 6.2 release is imminent and bce(4) has been patched to the point 
where it is relatively stable, we're nearing the point where we can 
finally put Dell PowerEdge 1950s/2950s into production.

However the lack of a MFI CLI management utility is still a grave concern. 
Without it, there is no way to proactively monitor the RAID controller for 
failed components (aside from sitting there 24/7/365 and waiting for a 
blue light to go amber)
