Where are the logs?

The question is why is the RAID layer considering the disk as faulty?
Are there no SCSI/libata errors in the logs preceding the RAID event?
There must be some reason for it, and that reason presumably is in
the libata/SCSI layer, *not* the RAID layer.
Try posting to linux-kernel, because it's likely a libata/sata_sil or
more likely a disk problem. (given that you're using _exact_ same
controllers as I am, we're both using linux-raid, you're using Maxtor
(iirc) and i'm using WDC and I have not had problems to date.)
