No answers?

I just actually replied to a thread about this.  Apparently there is no 
automatic demotion of a device to DEGRADED.  I just had a provider error 
for a good 5 minutes of SCSI kernel messages (bad sectors, grown defects), 
without any automatic corrective action taken by gmirror(4)

My original message was held of moderation.

"...from back in the heady days when "helpdesk" meant nothing, "diskquota"
meant everything, and lives could be bought and sold for a couple of pages
of laser printout - and frequently were."
