I sort of asked this in my last post, but now I would like a direct answer if anyone
actually knows.

When md raid6 is doing a resync (repair), does it use the feature where raid6
can detect an error and correct it (meaning is intelligently decides which
disk to write to) (it can also detect a double error) or does it simply
recalculate the P and Q (as an initial sync does)?

Much appreciated.
