I set up almost the exact same configuration and all went well (HP 
DL380).  No gotchas or glitches. 

I have a feeling that Tzafrir is trying to fix what is not broken, since 
he never pointed out a single conflict between various hardware using 
patched Zaptel drivers configurations. 

Maybe he is looking down the road and being proactive which I applaud, 
but I think he is obsessing over what he feels is the "incorrect" way of 
doing things and demanding (tone in emails) that they cooperate and do 
what he tells them.  A little tact goes a long way.
