I am willing to test on a Dell r210 with a h200 raid card tomorrow if needed.

I destroyed the logical volume and built mps copied from -current (I opened a thread on stable@ a few weeks ago about this) but my "patch" was *nowhere* as big as this.

There's prolly tons of missed stuff... (seems to work though, just wouldn't show me the logical drive so I had to set them to passthrough)

Would that help any ?

The host being half in production now, I'd rather try stuff around only if it helps you guys...

It runs 8.2-RC3 with the sys/dev/mps/ folder from -current, a somewhat patched conf/files resembling yours, and the makefile to build mps as a module.

Let me know.
