With the raid controller in JBOD mode wouldn't you still have the interface to
the battery backup (which I didn't know about) but you would have the benefit
of bypassing buggy firmware and using a nice consistent open source (less buggy
etc.) raidframe or vinium.  It seems to me that (how much?) performance is the
only real (or supposed) benefit.

Now, I've got to get back to work...
