[CentOS] CentOS 8 LSI SAS2004 Driver

that chip should use the MPT2SAS driver, same as the more common SAS2008.
 a complication for both of those is they can be flashed to be either IT
(initiator-terminator mode, a pure SAS HBA), or IR (integrated raid, a
rather weak implementation of hardware raid).    AFAIK, the MPT2 driver is
for IT mode, so if the board identifies itself as IR, I believe it uses a
different 'megaraid' driver.
