If it's helpful we use (or did anyway, since an advantage of ZFS is avoiding using proprietary RAID cards !) Areca, we have a test machine running OI_148 using an Areca ARC1200 (PCIe x1).

When it comes to Marvells chips it some of them work on OSOL/OI and some
of them don't. Look into the OpenSolaris HCL, if it
signed/certified/native than it's fine but if it merely says "reported
to work" I would be careful about it. I would not recommend anyone using
JMicron controller chips as I have had tons of problems with them on
several different motherboards. There are drivers for them in OSOL/OI
but they are nothing but trouble.
