Adaptec 7902W chipset support

The AIC-7902 SCSI controller is not supported by OpenBSD. I'm planning
to buy some Sun V60x/V65x servers and they come with this chipset.

According to Adaptec's AIC-7902 product description:

320 MByte/sec SCSI data transfer rates
133 MHz, 64 bit, PCI-X interface that provides 1066 MByte/sec bandwidth
Signal compatible with AIC-7899W Ultra160 SCSI ASIC
Supports HostRAIDTM hardware mirroring
PCI 2.3 and PCI-X 1.0A compliant
Supports up to 15 Ultra320 devices per channel on a standard cable
configuration up to 12 meters

The "Signal compatible with AIC-7899W" got my attention: Will OpenBSD
(may be -current) work on the Sun's v60x and v65x ?

Anyone had some experience with these machines?
