I'm currently using a Perc5i PCIe 2-port SAS controller in production on
7.2-RELEASE amd64. It's whatever came with the Dell PowerEdge 1950 I'm
running, and it's been rock-solid; no RAID capabilities at all, but
hosts a gmirror just fine. It identifies as such:

mpt0 at pci0:2:8:0:        class=0x010000 card=0x1f061028 chip=0x00541000
rev=0x01 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'LSI Logic (Was: Symbios Logic, NCR)'
    device     = 'SAS 3000 series, 8-port with 1068 -StorPort'
    class      = mass storage
    subclass   = SCSI
