You can use the NCR/Symbios/LSI chips 810a or 875 as they are supported
by the PROM (Bios) of the Ultra 5's. Just get a cheap (PC) 875 PCI
controller and remove the bios chip from the card (if possible). I
tested it with a DawiControl controller. The 810a should work too as the
Solaris driver supports it ...
