      md: revert incorrect fix for read error handling in raid1. · d0e26078
      NeilBrown authored
      commit 4706b349 was a forward port of a fix that was needed
      for SLES10.  But in fact it is not needed in mainline because
      the earlier commit dd00a99e
       fixes the same problem in a
      better way.
      Further, this commit introduces a bug in the way it interacts with
      the automatic read-error-correction.  If, after a read error is
      successfully corrected, the same disk is chosen to re-read - the
      re-read won't be attempted but an error will be returned instead.
      After reverting that commit, there is the possibility that a
      read error on a read-only array (where read errors cannot
      be corrected as that requires a write) will repeatedly read the same
      device and continue to get an error.
      So in the "Array is readonly" case, fail the drive immediately on
      a read error.
