Ah, I can try that, thanks.  Did you have to do anything special to
downgrade?  When I run sas2flsh (from a DOS USB drive), I get
(with sas2flsh -o -f 2114it.bin -b mptsas2.rom):

Cannot downgrade NVDATA version to 11.00.110000.00.

Are you selectively updating just 2114it.bin or mptsas2.rom?
Or mixing and matching one from P19 and one from P20?
Sorry if this is really obvious, but this is the first LSI HBA
I've used.  Managed to flash P20 OK, but downgrading seems
