My solution to get the necessary information as compact and neat as
possible is this:

HBA no. Boardtype Revis EATA Bus BaseIO IRQ DMA Ch ID Pr QS S/G IS
scsi0 : PM3224A v07G.0 2.0c PCI 0xff90 11 BMST 3 7 N 64 252 Y
scsi1 : PM3224A - v07G.0 2.0c PCI 0xff50 9 BMST 1 7 N 64 252 Y

The EATA-[DMA,PIO] drivers spit out exactly one line per controller
found that shows the most important configuration information.

In this case ( two RAID controllers with together 4
SCSI channels serving 3 RAID arrays.
