There is support for Rev F in the tree and MCP55 is underway if not
already done.

The specs list some other chips though:
  nVIDIA NFP3600 + NPF3050
  NEC nPD720404 PCI-X tunnel
  SMSC Super I/O

(Is MCP55 slang for the 3600+3050?)

The NEC PCI-X chip is not supported but maybe it doesn't require any
special support. (Ie. HT/PCI config is enough.)

8Mbit flash is nice, you will probably want a Linux kernel so you can
boot from the nice SAS controller.

Possibly the chipset can decode 16Mbit in which case you'll fit Linux
without effort. 8 will require some care in building the kernel but
it's quite doable.
