Ive attempted to make the new OMSA 8.1 work on some 11th-Gen hardware
running CentOS 7.1 by using the following method described earlier on this

* patch the LSI middleware to read an alternate sysfs attribute. e.g to
read /sys/.../megaraid_sas/version instead:

>* sed -i -e 's/\x00release_date\x00/\x00version\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00/' /opt/dell/srvadmin/lib64/libstorelib.so.4.20.1-0

This method does work, but ultimately OMSA eventually goes back to the
state where it cannot detect the PERC card. Any ideas on making this fix
persistent, anyone else experiencing a similar issue?
