     These controllers support RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, JBOD, and superposi-
     tions of those configurations.

     Although the controllers are actual RAID controllers, the driver makes
     them look just like SCSI controllers.  All RAID configuration is done
     through the controllers' BIOSes.

     The management interface is provided through the bio(4) device or one of
     the daughter sd(4) devices as implemented in the bioctl(8) utility.  Log-
     ical disk status is exposed under the hw.sensors sysctl(8) and can be
     monitored using sensorsd(8).  For example:

           $ sysctl hw.sensors.ami0
           hw.sensors.ami0.drive0=online (sd0), OK
           hw.sensors.ami0.drive1=degraded (sd1), WARNING
           hw.sensors.ami0.drive2=failed (sd2), CRITICAL

     bio(4), intro(4), pci(4), scsi(4), sd(4), bioctl(8), sensorsd(8),

     The ami driver first appeared in OpenBSD 2.9.

     The ami driver was written by Michael Shalayeff <mickey@openbsd.org>.

     Management functions were implemented by Marco Peereboom
