We will switch soon from PE830 to PE840 (didn't have an 840 on hand yet),
and I need to understand controllers driver requirements and features.
When I go to the Dell driver support page for PE840, I'm offered 3 choices
under "SAS RAID adapters"
Dell PERC 5/E Adapter (driven by megaraid_sas)
Dell PERC 5/i Adapter (driven by megaraid_sas)
Dell SAS 5/iR Adapter (driven by mpt* modules)
So, is the SAS 5/iR controller RAID capable on Linux?
In the tarball you can download, together with the mpt* stuff, there's a
lsiutil.c file which seems to contain RAID management commands.
