zfs should only avoid writing to a failing non-redundant top-level vdev
zfs - Zettabyte File System
In metaslab_alloc_dva() we avoid writing single-copy data to devices that are degraded or have write errors. The problem is that if a device has a spare or mirror then we will not write to those device even though one of leaf vdevs may be healthy. This is suboptimal and instead we should only avoid writing to top-level vdevs that are failing and have no other redundancy.
