To make it a little more clear, it will have support but it will be
disabled in GENERIC kernel. You will have to enable it if you need to
use it. I didn't read slashdot so I don't know if they said this

Not sure for SATA, perhaps LSI, I do know that Adaptec supposely has
bugs in their SATA raid cards and they will freeze your server.

For SCSI, LSI (or anything else by ami driver).
