We are running the 1.2.1 package from Sun on the ILOM card and the
system BIOS.  The LSI card is running:

   LSI Logic Corp. MPT SAS BIOS
   MPTBIOS- (2005.11.03)
   Copyright 2000-2005 LSI Logic Corp.

The upgrade to the ILOM card, and consequently the system BIOS,
will not upgrade the LSI card and cause the boot problem that has
been reported by me and others.  As far as I know, the problem is
only caused by upgrading the LSI MPT card to version
