This is just another reason to use mdadm if at all possible.  It
generally is a lot more robust when stuff like this happens.  I'm sure
some of the higher-end controllers aren't bad, but in general you
really shouldn't be touching drives on hardware controllers unless
you're planning on doing a full backup and restore.  If this is just
the cheap RAID that comes with a lot of motherboards then I suspect
you're going to have an even harder time.
