FreeBSD, indeed. The vendor, Partners Data Systems, did a wonderful
job ensuring that everything integrated well to the point of talking
with various FreeBSD developers, LSI engineers, etc., and sent me a
fully tested system end-to-end with a Sun X4100 M2, LSI 4Gb Fibre
card, and their RAID array, with FreeBSD installed already.
I can't recommend them enough -- if you need a high-end RAID system
for FreeBSD (or other OS, I suppose) do check them out.

Yes, the system is in testing right now, so I'm playing with all
sort of different disk configurations and it seems that the 16-disk
RAID6 is the winner so far. The next best was the 14-disk RAID6 + 2
disk RAID1 for log.
I have separate disks built-in to the system for boot.
