It would be helpful if already the generic block layer would offer device error counters. Then btrfs could read them, add own counters for its checksum detected errors, and store everything persistently in the filesystem.
I take it that you not only count I/O-errors, but also corrupted blocks and errors generated by misdirected writes. These are informations that are not available to the block layer.
The goal is to replace disks that have an increased error rate with spare disks, and the goal is to repair this degenerated RAID state quickly.

Therefore statistic counters are added that count IO errors (read, write and flush). Additionally, the software detected errors like checksum errors and corrupted blocks are counted. An ioctl interface is added to get the device statistic counters. A second ioctl is added to atomically get and reset these counters. The device statistics are written into the device tree with each transaction commit. Only modified statistics are written. When a filesystem is mounted, the device statistics for each involved device are read from the device tree and used to initialize the counters. A patch for the btrfs-progs world will also be sent.
