  1. It looks like /usr/src/linux/config-extract sets CONFIG_FUSION_FC=m so I guess I just needed to run that again. I'm not sure why I couldn't find that setting when I ran `make menuconfig`, even within the resulting config file. I definitely could have simply missed it. I'm running genkernel with the config now, so we'll see if it works.
  2. Thanks for the suggestion! I have and use mdadm, but that doesn't help to facilitate communication between the HBA and the JBOD, nor does it help to make the kernel aware of any block devices from the JBOD. The mptfc driver is what I needed. I still need a long-term solution for getting this module into my initramfs in this and future kernels using genkernel.
  3. Huh. I wonder why? I managed to get the module to compile (along with all the other modules), and install, just so I could test it. The module worked well. `make menuconfig` did not show an option for mptfc, as far as I could tell. Maybe I missed something.
  4. I'm very new to fiber channel and storage arrays. While trying to set up an old JBOD (4G fiber channel SFP) and the HBA mentioned in the title of this post, I have been unable to figure it out on my own thus far. I'm using funtoo, with the cinnamon stage tarball as a base and debian-sources for my kernel source. The card shows up in lspci output, but the expected driver (mptfc, at least according to https://wiki.debian.org/DeviceDatabase/PCI) doesn't load, and doesn't even seem to be present on my system. Nothing in dmesg. I found mpt3sas, but that module doesn't seem to help. Is there someone
