     aac - Adaptec AdvancedRAID Controller driver

     aac* at pci? dev ? function ?

     The aac driver provides support for the Adaptec AAC family of SCSI and
     SATA RAID controllers.  These controllers support RAID 0, 1, 5, 10, and
     volume sets.  They have four channels in the add-in version or 1-2
     channels in the motherboard integrated version, and are most often found
     rebadged by Dell, Hewlett-Packard or IBM.  Supported controllers include:

        Adaptec AAC-364
        Adaptec SCSI RAID 2120S
        Adaptec SCSI RAID 2200S
        Adaptec SATA RAID 2410SA
        Adaptec SATA RAID 3405
        Adaptec SCSI RAID 5400S
        Dell PERC 2/Si
        Dell PERC 2/QC
        Dell PERC 3/Di
        Dell PERC 3/Si
        Dell PERC 320/DC
        Dell CERC SATA RAID 1.5/6ch
        HP NetRAID 4M
        HP ML110 G2 (Adaptec SATA RAID 2610SA)
        IBM ServeRAID 8k

     Access to RAID containers is available via the ld device driver.
     Individual drives cannot be accessed unless they are part of a container
     or volume set, and non-fixed disks cannot be accessed.  Containers can be
     configured by using the on-board BIOS utility of the card.

     The adapter can send status and alert messages asynchronously to the
     driver.  These messages are printed on the system console.

     intro(4), ld(4)

     The aac driver first appeared in NetBSD 1.6, and was based on the FreeBSD
     driver of the same name.

     This driver is not compatible with controllers that have version 1.x
     firmware.  The firmware version is the same as the kernel version printed
     in the BIOS POST and driver attach messages.
