Backwards is hard.  I went through that trying to get v20 reverted on some
new HBAs.

The only method I could find that worked was using the UEFI shell and UEFI
sas2flash utility to erase the firmware and install the old version.  On
older motherboards, the DOS method should work. Solaris/Illumos sas2flash
is incapable of erasing the firmware.
