But doesn't the raid device become unavailable? (since the
device is busy)?
I'm pretty sure it "just works." I suspect that until parity is
regenerated you will be running in a degraded mode with no access to
the parity information anyway. Regenerating parity from the other
parts doesn't interfere with that. Once parity is fine, it switches
to full raid operation.
