I'm using the LSI chipset, and the driver works fine. I can configure my
disks and work with mirroring.

looks like it's trying to load LSI mpt/fusion driver from the ramdisk.

gsyprf3:/usr/src/2.4.20# find -name mptbase\*

Do you have an LSI FC or u320 controller installed or built-in?
Did the LSI EFI driver get loaded?
