Hi Mark,

I happen to have Dell R410 that runs CentOS 6. Here is what I've got (I'm
obliterating hostname below):

# uname -a
Linux *******.uchicago.edu 2.6.32-642.1.1.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue May 31
21:57:07 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

# lspci
02:00.0 SCSI storage controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic SAS1068E
PCI-Express Fusion-MPT SAS (rev 08)

# lsmod
mptsas                 51992  9
mptscsih               36638  1 mptsas
mptbase                93647  2 mptsas,mptscsih
scsi_transport_sas     35588  1 mptsas

# find /lib/modules/2.6.32-642.1.1.el6.x86_64 -name mptsas\*

# rpm -qf

As you see, all works for me with stock kernel, no need to fiddle with

I hope, this helps.
