To contine in this vein, the recommended fix seemed to be to download
the latest driver (6.1.8) from <http://people.freebsd.org/~gibbs/linux/>.
I've got that running now (also on a machine with an embedded, dual
channel controller), on a kernel pulled out of CVS this morning and
everything was detected as expected.
Now we'll see how 3c59x and nfsd hold up. Sooner or later, I will have to
let the grad students at this RAID array. *sigh*
