This is what I use in smartd.conf :

/dev/twa0 -H -m root -d 3ware,0 -s S/../../7/04
/dev/twa0 -H -m root -d 3ware,1 -s S/../../7/04
/dev/twa0 -H -m root -d 3ware,2 -s S/../../7/04

Also, tw_cli just works for me. Maybe you should do a firmware upgrade
of your 3ware controller.

Hoping the problem  magically goes away  by ignoring it is the
"microsoft approach to programming" and should never be allowed.
