Ok, I dug through this and found the bug responsible for your
unmountable FS. When we're mounted in degraded mode, and we don't have
enough drives available to do raid1,10, we're can use the wrong raid
level for new allocations.
I'm fixing the kernel side so this doesn't happen anymore, but I'll need
to rebuild the chunk tree (and probably a few others) off your good disk to
I've got it reproduced here though, so I'll make an fsck that can scan
for the correct trees and fix it for you.
Since you're basically going to be my first external fsck customer, is
there anyway you can do a raw device based backup of the blocks? This
way if I do mess things up we can repeat the experiment.
