Deactivating is maybe a bit of a too strong word. But I'd expect we'll
get EIO from al sectors not just those on the failed device.

That current proposed solution we have internally is to simply poll
the status output for the PVs and handle it all in userspace. To me
this seems a bit clumsy, but at least it's easily doable in short time.
