You need to update the firmware on your PERC2/SC card. It's probably older
than v3.13 (the latest), and the 6.2 kernel knows that old firmware in this
case is a really bad thing and won't let you use the card. (There were
warnings on VT4 when the megaraid driver loaded). Newest firmware can be
found at http://domsch.com/linux/#megaraid.
