Can anyone give me a definitive statement wrt the status of PERC S300
SATA controller support for Linux? I found an inconclusive thread on
this list last month:
and rumour from two months ago that it might be supported by the mpt2sas
mpt2sas doesn't support it in the binaries we have to hand, and I can't
see how or where in the current mainline kernel source.
I also found people claiming it's hardware-identical to the
fully-working SAS 6/iR controller we thought we were getting (both PCBs
are marked "UCS-61" and look the same to the untrained eye).
Is there a Linux driver of any kind available anywhere? A JBOD-only
driver that we have to compile ourselves would be absolutely fine.
Is it possible to re-flash the hardware with the SAS 6/iR firmware?
