ZFS mirror keeps going offline/removed

So I think I figured it out, don't know where I saw it but I think I came
across some advice somewhere saying to try replacing the SATA cables, and
that seems like it has done the trick. They were plugged into different
controllers (one mobo, one PCIe HBA card). Might only have been 1 cable
with a problem, or maybe simply re-seating the cables would have worked.
But the 2 new cables seems to have made it work well, so I'm going to leave
it as is.
