Disk Firmware Upgrade Advisory Question

Recently an advisory came out regarding disk firmware upgrade which was labeld critical.
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c00859596&dimid=1065800144&dicid=alr_apr08&jumpid=em_alerts/us/apr08/all/xbu/emailsubid/mrm/mcc/loc/rbu_category_Advisory(Revision/alerts

The advisory specifies problems with U320 drives. it does not specify that this is a critical problem if they are connected to a MSA array controller.

The problem seems to be within the drive and therefore would apply to all controllers associated with the drives.

We have a large number of these drives attached to MSA controllers (1000 and 1500cs).

is the firmware update critical for our configuration?
