OMSA 5.5 reports incorrect megaraid_sas version

Hello,

I recently updated OMSA to 5.5 on my CentOS 4.7 PE2950.  At the same 
time I upgraded the Perc5/e Perc5/i firmware to 5.2.2-0076.  OMSA 
produced a helpful alert about the megaraid_sas driver version being 
below the minimum required by this new firmware, so I went and did a 
'yum update megaraid_sas' from the Dell Linux repository.  The driver 
package installed ok, and modinfo indicates that the latest version is 
being used (3.21), but OMSA still reports the older 3.18 version.  As a 
result I get a controller state of "degraded" and spurious alerts appear 
my logs.  Is there a way to get OMSA to udpate the controller driver 
version number?  Relevant output is below.

Thanks,
Chris
