    I have had ZFS automatically repair corrupted raw data when one
component of the redundancy failed, just as DiskSuite (SLVM) will
resync a failed mirror.

   I think you may be using different definitions of "corrupt". In my
case, the backend storage / drive that was part of a redundant zpool
failed (or became unreliable). Once the issue was resolved, a resilver
operation rewrote the data that had been corrupted on the failing
component. No corrupt data was ever presented to the application.
