KERN - mfi driver for Dell raid h200 on r210 servers

Hello lists,

I'm trying to get FreeBSD 8.0 or 8.1 to run on a Dell poweredge r210 server.

It ships with a SATA/SAS h200 RAID controller.

Sadly, the MFI driver doesn't seem to register for this card...

Find below the pciconf -lcvb

none6 at pci0:1:0:0:       class=0x010700 card=0x1f1d1028 chip=0x00721000
rev=0x02 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'LSI Logic (Was: Symbios Logic, NCR)'
    class      = mass storage
    subclass   = SAS
    bar   [10] = type I/O Port, range 32, base 0xfc00, size 256, enabled
    bar   [14] = type Memory, range 64, base 0xdf2b0000, size 65536, enabled
    bar   [1c] = type Memory, range 64, base 0xdf2c0000, size 262144, enabled
    cap 01[50] = powerspec 3  supports D0 D1 D2 D3  current D0
    cap 10[68] = PCI-Express 2 endpoint max data 256(4096) link x8(x8)
    cap 03[d0] = VPD
    cap 05[a8] = MSI supports 1 message, 64 bit
    cap 11[c0] = MSI-X supports 15 messages in map 0x14

I have added the following to /usr/src/sys/dev/mfi/mfi_pci.c at line 119:
{0x1000, 0x0072, 0x1028, 0x1f1e, MFI_FLAGS_GEN2,  "Dell PERC H200 Integrated"},

Rebuilt the kernel, tried it on the server, still no luck recognizing
the RAID card.

As a last resort I'll be setting the drives to passthrough and using a
software RAID, but I'd much rather this worked out.

Note that mfi actually recognizes Dell's h700 and h800 cards.

Anyone managed to get the h200 card working yet ?
