Kernel Panic with text install with HP Smart Array
When the text installer begins to write Openindiana to the E200 Smart Array on my HP Proliant DL385 g5, a kernel panic ensues. Some googling suggested it was the CPQary3 driver. I followed the advice on http://www.greenviolet.net/articles/2011/09/21/openindiana-151a-and-hp-smart-array-controllers.gv, and tried the newest driver and the driver version previous. Both produced the same error.

This is almost certainly the same bad-ashift from DKIOCGMEDIAINFOEXT / READ_CAPACITY_16 response formats as the two bugs I just added to See Also.
Albert, weren't you working on a fix for this at some point? Is it in Nexenta's tree and easy to pluck out?

Is there anything I can do re: this bug to help? My programming skills are a little bit rusty, but I could help with some basic stuff.
Strongly prefer Solaris to Linux/BSD, is there anything I can do about this bug in the meantime? Will cciss run on Solaris?

I have also come across this exact problem trying to install Openindiana u5 to a DL360 with an E200i Smart Array, 2 disks configured as a mirror. I will try some workarounds for now. Once it's installed I may be able to look at the problem.
