Well, it's a bit mixed. The PVs in datvol are spread over two SATA 
controllers, one of which also controls the ravol drives. However, the 
drive that failed was on the controller which is not used by ravol, and 
the actual PV in ravol (there's only one) is an MD volume (a RAID 1 
array), and MD itself never reported any errors.
