Absolutely. Now we need to figure out how to get from here to an
empty data partition.

After the mount, both of sd[ab]1 would have to be recovered and
usable, but out of sync. So when the raid was force-reassembled, md
would sync the older from the newer. This should, in my book, result
in a valid and full filesystem.

I would assume that the fsck -b run then somehow screwed up the
data. Maybe it's even a bug in fsck -b.

And the other question of course is why the kernel decided it had
any business doing recovery on an fs that was marked for ro mount.
