Ive been talking to and working with the guys at Areca to get the
drivers sorted, they are also working with upstream to get the driver
included in the upstream kernel, for now - use the dd images I pushed,
that will do-the-right-thing, and follow weak-updates, so you dont need
kmod's for them with the kernels for c5 ( so far ) - I have half a dozen
11xx and 12xx Areca cards in production, and I can tell you that they
totally rock!
