No, don't think so.

I have a patch, but I'm not so sure I can recommend that you use it.

I only wrote it to copy off a single block of a bad disk - I'm not sure
exactly how it will behave when moving multiple blocks (if the
non-corrupted blocks will end up in the right spot, or if it writes too
little data, so it will be some bytes off).
