LSI MegaRAID 9260 on FreeBSD 8.2 amd64

I want to use an LSI MegaRAID 9260 on FreeBSD 8.2 amd64 using mfi and I have two quick questions:

LSI's MegaRaid SAS documentation [1] states that "Currently, the FreeBSD driver is supported only on 32-bit FreeBSD".  On the other hand the FreeBSD 8.2 hardware compatibility page [2] states that the mfi driver supports the MegaRaid 9260 in all three of the i386, ia64, amd64 ports.

Is LSI's documentation simply out of date or is there some issue with the mfi driver on amd64?

Lastly, they describe the installation process including rebuilding the kernel.  Is the mfi driver not built in and active by default?
