That's probably what I should have done.  I don't seem able to do it
now, though; raidctl -r refuses to remove /dev/wd3e from raid11's
spares.  (It doesn't complain, but wd3e is still listed as a spare when
I check with -G afterwards.)

I should probably go read the code to see if I can figure out what's
really going on here...might be worth setting up a test machine I _can_
reboot casually.  (The machine in question is a production machine and
I'm not in the right city to deal with it personally.)
