If the hardware raid presents itself as sdb1 and the hardware raid is
actually working you should be able to check your filesystem using xfs_repair.
If the raid5 setup has 2 disk failures at the same time and this was the
2nd disk going from the set then you are fried.
Hardware raid should _NEVER_ throw an IO error if the raid container is
still alive. If it does, either the raid controller is broken or in this
case there might have been a 2nd disk gone and thus it restults in a IO error.
The hardware raid controller presents itself as a virtual device and the
sectors you are referring to are not actual disk sectors.
I am afraid we cannot help you.
It might just be your lucky day, if you only knew.
