I've had good experience with 3Ware on FreeBSD - painless installs and
excellent performance! (in my case the older 7506 models for (P)ATA on
4.10, 5.4, 6.0 and 6.1).
It looks like the new 9550 series is supported in 6.1 onwards. Given
that this has been added recently I would suggest mailing
freebsd-hardware to see what experiences folks are having (I don't
recall seeing any postings about issues with the 9000 or 9550 series).
