I have X card and it workd beautifully.
On ia64 -current I have:
isp0 at pci0:192:1:0: class=0x0c0400 card=0x12d6103c chip=0x24221077 rev=0x02 hdr=0x00
vendor = 'QLogic Corporation'
device = 'QLogic PCI to Fibre Channel Host Adapter for QLA2460 (ISP2422)'
class = serial bus
subclass = Fibre Channel
