Dell Support told me to update firmwares and PERC6i driver to megasas

I installed driver update and applied all firmwares from SUU 6.3.

Problem persists:

# dmesg |grep mega
megasas: Tue. Mar. 30 14:13:02 EST 2010
megasas: 0x1000:0x0060:0x1028:0x1f0c: bus 1:slot 0:func 0
  ppc: instance->base_addr = de480000<6>megasas: FW now in Ready state
megasas_init_mfi: fw_support_ieee=0<6>scsi0 : LSI SAS based MegaRAID driver
