Don't be foolish with over the top statements....

It takes a trivial bit of time and research to understand the CentOS
project guideline of binary compatibility to the Upstream Vendor.

To any technical enough to have such a discussion it should be
immediately apparent that 'working with CentOS to deal with bugs for
drivers etc' is a pretty pointless statement... and the correct effort
is upstream with Redhat.

Should LSI spend the time with Redhat - as they should already be
doing quite frankly if they want to be relevant in the linux world -
then it assists CentOS automatically.

To be asked to be forwarded to the appropriate forum with zero
apparent research in insulting on their part.

The redirection requested was given - and now it is up to LSI to work
with Redhat for anything they want certified.
