sorry for not following up on this sooner. Last year I decided to go
the FreeBSD route and updated the kernel module as specified on the
LSI website. It worked fine.
The upgrade to 9.1 brought the new mfi module, which indeed supports
the controller, so from kernel 9.1 onwards there is no need to
compile any additional module. 

The server is now running a 9.2-RELEASE kernel and everything works
fine. As the server is in production I can not really test a
Debian+kfreebsd installation, but I have no reason to think that it
would make any difference, so for me the bug can be closed :)

Thanks for pinging me about this!
