I also have mpt2sas and it is slow in disk initialization but I never use
suspend/resume. I only use shutdown/reboot. I use rootdelay=15.
Interesting. I did not have to use rootdelay for reboots. This is because I don't get to grub screen until mpt2sas finishes its thing. So, disks are ready. This is not true in suspend because normal bios sequence is not run for resume, I think.
