yes.  megaraid 1.18i is quite stable, megaraid2 2.00.7 is in pretty good
shape, but has had less public exposure, thus may have more problems which
haven't yet been reported, but is in pretty good shape.

Either 1.18i or 2.00.7 should work fine for you.

I haven't seen 1.18i be included in Marcelo's tree yet.  I suspect the LSI 
folks need to submit a patch to him yet.  I know they sent the whole .c 
and .h files for it, but I know Marcelo would prefer to see just the patch 
sent to linux-kernel.
