Yeah, someone was having trouble with kernel panic -- the VFS cannot
mount root one indicating that the card wasn't being recognized by the
kernel. Haven't heard if he got it resolved or not, though. I can
personally confirm that the 2.6 kernel can see 9xxx series cards, at
least the 9500S-12:

# uname -a
Linux raid #1 SMP Fri Sep 30 16:42:38 PDT 2005 i686 GNU/Linux
# ./tw_cli info
