There is a new version (0.9.8) on the website which includes UNTESTED
support for HP Smart Array controllers (cciss).

Tested 0.9.8 on BL20p G3 and received the following error message:

Comment 7 Greg Caetano 2009-05-15 16:25:37 EDT
Tested with v0.9.9 that supports LVM snapshots and issue has been corrected. I can move systems configured for ext3 /dev/cciss/c0d0 partitions or those with LVM volumes on the /dev/cciss/c0d0.
Comment 8 Richard W.M. Jones 2011-04-13 04:50:23 EDT
virt-p2v has been rewritten.  I'm reassigning this bug
to Matt Booth to make sure that the new virt-p2v will
work with /dev/cciss devices.
Comment 9 Richard W.M. Jones 2011-08-30 06:01:26 EDT
There is a new version of virt-p2v and virt-v2v:
