Well, if you truly only need 8 additional ports (on top of the 4 from the motherboard) you can get by with two SAS 4x channels instead of four. IBM M1015 is an LSI rebadge and can be had for $100.

comment How to remove the OpenSolaris ZFS dump device
Since you're just trying to reclaim the space, can you resize the dump volume to something silly small like zfs set volsize=1M rpool/dump?

I haven't tried this myself, but if you read the link it suggest that even you don't have a suitable swap device, telling it to use swap will set it to 'none' so it's no longer using your dump device. Can't hurt to try.

Have you tried flashing the new LSI P15 firmware and corresponding BIOS? LSI and OEMs are notoriously bad for shipping old firmware on cards.

comment zfs rename/move root filesystem into child
@USDMatt: You are totally right. This works perfectly if you're working with subfileystems (tank/a -> tank/a@snap -> tank/asnap-clone -> tank/renamed-asnap-clone) but not if you're working at the root of the zpool. Feels like a bug, chalk it up as another reason to never fill the root filesystem of your pool).
