Looking for supported SAS controller

I am looking for a PCIe SAS controller (HBA) for connecting a internal
SAS tape drive (HP LTO3/Ultrium3 Storageworks 920) that works with
The mainboard is a supermicro X10SLM-F with Xeon e3 1200v3.
I have had no success with an old LSI SAS 1064 based controller (Fujitsu
Siemens brand 3041E-FSC (L3-00131-01c), PCIe gen1). I recon this one is
supported by FreeBSD drivers, but I can't get it to work with the
mainboard (controller is not detected). A new firmware on the controller
might help, but alas I don't have any suitable spare box to do the flashing.
I am currently looking into buying a newer Adapatec 6405H, which is
known to work with the mainboard, but Adaptec support told me there is
no driver for FreeBSD. Can anyone confirm this?
Note that this is _not_ the RAID controller 6405 or 6405T. Considering
the similar names, could the 6405H HBA be a stripped down version of the
RAID controller and thus be supported by the same driver (if any)?
Thanks for your help!
