The driver is called cciss, and supports the built in SmartArray
controller as well as the higher-end optional RAID controllers like the

Look in /proc/driver/cciss/ccissX (where X is the controller number,
usually '0' for the built-in) for some basic info.

Devices attached to these controllers appear as /dev/cciss/cXdXpX

c=controller #
d=logical drive #
p=partition #

Thus the first partition on the first logical drive on the built-in
controller is /dev/cciss/c0d0p1.
