Dell SAS 6/ir Cards are just LSi 1068E cards

02:00.0 SCSI storage controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic SAS1068E PCI-Express Fusion-MPT SAS (rev 08)
03:00.0 SCSI storage controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic SAS1068E PCI-Express Fusion-MPT SAS (rev 08)

Basically these cards are a stripped-down version of Dell Perc 6/i only  they (SAS 6/ir) support JBOD.

The Dell Perc 6/i are basically useless because it doesn't have JBOD support and requires software or BIOS commands to add or remove any hard drive-defeating the purpose of hot swapping convenience and ease).  I tried loading other firmware to the 6/i's but it wouldn't work or boot with Dell's Perc BIOS.  I tried using other methods which actually bricked the Perc 6/i (never try those ones that erase the BIOS first without testing to see if the program that writes the new BIOS can actually detect your card!).
