FreeBSD 6.2-amd64, ServeRAID 8k and Linux aaccli

Hi,

I have a couple IBM x3550 machines with ServeRAID 8k-l SAS  
controllers in them that I'd like to monitor. The aaccli in ports is  
too old to query these cards, but the Linux aaccli complains about a  
particular IOCTL, which is caused by a lack of the aac_linux module  
in the kernel:

CLI> open aac0
Command Error: <The driver could not execute the requested IOCTL  
SENDFIB, 22=invalid argument.>

Is there any way to get around this? Can the aac_linux module by  
compiled (and work) under amd64 at all? What is preventing it from  
working under amd64?

The card is as follows:
aac0: <IBM ServeRAID 8k> port 0x4000-0x40ff mem 0xcce00000-0xccffffff, 
0xcafe0000-0xcaffffff irq 17 at device 0.0 on pci2
aac0: Enabling 64-bit address support
aac0: New comm. interface enabled
aac0: Adaptec Raid Controller 2.0.1-1

Cheers

Phil
