I have a SAS disk attached to the system through a SAS controller(LSI). How do I find the version of the driver of the SAS device entry.

In the modinfo, I can see only vermagic and srcversion but not version.

In the sysfs, inside /sys/block/devices/sdc/drivers/ folder, I couldn't see modules folder which will have version file.

Or how can I find the parent device (LSI controller) to which the hard disk is connected through sysfs for which I will try to find the driver version.
