I've got HP DL 360 G4 box with HP Smart Array 6i RAID controller in it. 
It was my long waited chance to try DragonFly, but there is no a driver 
for this RAID controller in a distribution. But there is one in FreeBSD 
4.9 (ciss) and it works. I know nothing about driver writing and a 
little about kernel programming but I have a general knowledge of ANSI C 
:) and a knowledge of building custom kernels under FreeBSD. So can you 
guide me how to convert this FreeBSD driver into DragonFly driver and 
then compile and create a new distribution?

Regards, Andrey.
