You really, really, really need to mount your filesystem with
"-o errors=remount-ro", at least to prevent filesystem corruption.
I'm not sure if this is enough to prevent corruption in the case
of your RAID disconnects (if it doesn't generate errors up to the
filesystem, but still discards writes), but it is at least a minimum
requirement.
