Dell support was so kind to escalate this case. I have made some more 
observations, maybe it's valuable to some:

first PE2950III tried:
- going back to OMSA6.2 solves it immediately, with both megaraid drivers
- never shows the controller in OMSA 6.3, I tried with and without 
megaraid_sas update, OMSA 6.3 32bit and OMSA 6.3 64bit
- even with OMSA6.3 64bit live cd the controller is not found

second PE2950III (it's almost identical hw, even rpm packages installed 
only less RAM):
- works fine with OMSA6.2
- with OMSA6.3 32 and 64bit only finds controller, if stock RedHat 
driver is used (this is contrary to what dell suggests)
