Since I am running 6.0 I found the 6.0 equivalent driver version 118 (hpsa-184.108.40.206-3638475.zip) here:
For those that don't know how, I installed the single VIB file via SSH connection with WinSCP/Putty:
[root@localhost:~] esxcli software vib install -v /tmp/hpsa118.vib --no-sig-check
Message: The update completed successfully, but the system needs to be rebooted for the changes to be effective.
Reboot Required: true
VIBs Installed: Hewlett-Packard_bootbank_scsi-hpsa_220.127.116.11-1OEM.600.0.0.249 4585
VIBs Removed: Hewlett-Packard_bootbank_scsi-hpsa_18.104.22.168-1OEM.600.0.0.24945 85
Another neat way to install VIB which I wasn't aware of using the embedded web host:
We'll see how it goes.... according to HP this version 118 fixes the issue.
Same here with a HP ProLiant DL380 G7 with P410i Smart Array controller (firmware 6.64) and local RAID 10 volume with hot spares.
(all firmware updated with Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) Version 2016.04.0)
I'm experiencing high latency during "lost access to volume ....." event logs.
Patched this server to driver version "scsi-hpsa_22.214.171.124-1OEM.600.0.0.2494585.vib".
(server was installed with VMware-ESXi-6.0.0-Update2-3620759-HPE-600.9.5.0.48-Apr2016.iso lately)
But still same "lost access to volume ...." errors.
Still waiting/searching for final solution.
Did anyone find an answer for this? I am having the same problem.. The only difference is that I have a RAID 50 setup without a hotspare.
I've already updated my ESXi 6 installation to the latest version and replaced the driver with the 118 version. The system runs fine for about a day or two, but then it all starts to slow down...
The strange thing is, I do have the latency errors and the WARNING: LinScsi: SCSILinuxAbortCommands:1843: Failed, Driver hpsa, for vmhba1 errors in my vmkwarning.log, but I don't have the Lost access to volume errors..
I have run into this issue too.. with HP DL380 G9 and P440ar, RAID10 and RAID 6 (two luns) and a dedicated spare on both lun.
Firmware at latest 4.02, using ESXi 6.0 U2. Tried drivers 114, 116, and 118, all are giving same problem of "LinScsi: SCSILinuxAbortCommands:1891: Failed, Driver hpsa" and Lost / restore access to the local attached luns. It happens especially during rescan for datastore.
Well... Today i patched the new version 126.96.36.199-1 (24 Oct 2016) .... Running for 2 hours now and it looks like that the "lost access to volume ...." events are disappeared !!!
I don't see any high latency spikes at the disk performance graph anymore too. I hope this issue is finally fixed.

Please share your experience.
Thanks for pointing on this version.
ProLiant DL370 G6 with P410i - RAID 5 + spare disk.
SPP 2016.04.0, firmware 6.64
ESXi 6.0 U1b
Running with scsi-hpsa_184.108.40.206 for about 4 hours - no warnings in logs, no latency peaks. :-)
Let's wait, if it is not causing PSOD in few days...
Correct me if I'm wrong, but what I remember, working version was not released in past 2 years.
