    Unfortunatly, the server I have trouble with is a production server, and
    we don't have another HP LH4/NetRaid for testing.

    I'm not sure your patch would catch *every* firmware problems.
    What if the controller cache is badly written to disk(s) ?
    It could give you back correctly your block from cache, but
    write "mayonnaise" on disks...

    But I'm sure it can help,
