Check and see if you can flash the Initiator Target (IT) firmware onto 
the RAID card such that it's no longer an Integrated RAID (IR) device. 
Thus giving you the HBA mode that you want.

I've done this on a few RAID chip sets built into Supermicro 
motherboards and been quite happily running ZFS on them.  }:-)
