This page answers my question for this controller:


LSI1068e is *not* usable at all.

You'd be better off going with separate PCI-X/PCIe controllers.  Not sure about DragonFlyBSD, but FreeBSD fully supports these cards (mpt(4), mfi(4), twa(4)):

4-port PCI-X:  LSI SAS 3041X-R 
8-port PCI-X:  LSI SAS 3080X-R

4-port PCIe:  LSI SAS 3041E-R
8-port PCIe:  LSI SAS 3081E-R

There's also the 3Ware cards (these are SAS and SATA):

4-port PCIe:  LSI 3Ware 9690SA-4I
8-port PCIe:  LSI 3Ware 9690SA-8I

These are SATA, but include support for mini-SAS connectors and do work with SAS drives:

4-port PCIe:  LSI 3Ware 9650SE-4LPML
8-port PCIe:  LSI 3Ware 9650SE-8LPML

4-port PCI-X:  LSI 3Ware 9550SXU-4LP
8-port PCI-X:  LSI 3Ware 9550SXU-8LP
