Correct. I guess, that I need AIC7XXX support as well
(I've attached both .configs).

The vanilla kernel boots without initrd and detects the
ServeRAID controller "without" problems (ok - obviously
2.6.12s ServeRAID driver is too new):

ips 0000:02:05.0: Warning ! ! ! ServeRAID Version Mismatch
ips 0000:02:05.0: Bios = 7.00.14, Firmware = 7.00.14, Device Driver = 7.10.18
ips 0000:02:05.0: These levels should match to avoid possible compatibility

I checked the troubleshooting tip

When running the multiple processor kernel, Linux has a
problem accessing controllers that are assigned IRQ 9 by the
system BIOS. To correct this problem, enter the system BIOS
and change the IRQ assigned to each controller.

Generic SCSI support is enabled in both kernels, too.

Further hints?

There is no safe distance.
