[PVE-User] Experience (or issues) with Dell Controller ?

I have 3 PowerEdge R610 servers with the H700 controller as well.  Running
2.1 with no issues on 2.6.32 kernel.  All of them work just fine.  I have
an iSCSI array on the backend for all the VMs so each server only has two
drives in a RAID1 configuration for the OS.
