Help ID oddball SCSI controller

Hi,

I've got an oddball SCSI controller card that I would
like help identifying (actually, I have several *different*
ones but we'll start with this one  :>  )

Card is full length.  PCI.  Appears to be made by IBM
(FRU 76H6875).  Has three AIC-7880's on it connected to
three "internal" wide SCSI-2 connectors -- and a single
external connector presumably tied to one of these three
busses.  Onboard PowerPC and what appears to be a
connector for a flying CF card.  A pair of 10 pin
headers one of which has a "SERIAL" legend nearby.
A third header labeled JTAG (no doubt for manufacturing
diagnostics).

External connector appears to be LVD or SE (bummer, I
was hoping to find a HVD in this box of goodies...)

I'll assume it's a RAID controller.  But, question is
how well (if at all!) it is supported and whether it
is worth my time or if I should just toss it in the
box and dig out the next "mystery card"?

Thanks!
