FWIW, be careful of using 'sudo', as the MegaSAS/RAID drivers do a
getuid() call instead of relying on geteuid(), so we've had problems
with that.

I use v 8.00.xx and 8.02.xx so, 8.01 should be fine.  They add
features as they add supported controllers so some options might
not work, but i haven't seen any fatal unexpected misfeatures
if used on the "wrong" controller.

(They do change the output format, capitalization, and spacing from version to
version, and their crazy notion of random vowel removal from commands
and options is highly annoying)
