First of all, I suggest a clean sql backup of your user database as well system database (Master, Msdb and model) prior to start of upgrade.

At the same time, SAN team should take a copy of mdf/ndf and log files for safety.

Before start of the upgrade, a clean shutdown of sql service is required in order to avoid killing inflight transaction which in turn may delay the recovery process while startup later.

I have done this multiple times most of the time it runs pretty smooth HBA firmware and drivers doesn't impact SQL layer of files . If you have EMC its even more robust .
Above all you have active active , mine was active passive so we did failover check before and after HBA upgrade .

Backup of SQL is fine for extra precuation but not necessary .
