Should do, if you create /dev/ioerror with dmsetup as a device
bigger than the device you lost.


cat > tab1 << EOF
0 10000000 error

dmsetup create ioerror tab1
ln -s /dev/mapper/tab1 /dev/ioerror

Replace the 10000000 with a number slightly bigger than the 
size of your problem disk in sectors.   [device size in bytes / 512]

[Need to bring dmsetup(8) up-to-date.]
