As Rainer said, this is best discussed on the ELRepo mailing list, but ...

There is a good chance that kmod-aacraid from ELRepo works on the
Adaptec RAID in question.  To confirm this, it will be helpful to get
the hardware fingerprint.

# lspci | grep -i raid

will show a line similar to:

01:00.0 RAID bus controller: Adaptec AAC-RAID

Then running this:

lspci -n | grep 01:00.0

will display the vendor:device ID pairing.
