OT: Well nyes - have you tried and issued a mount -o remount,rw for the
afflicted virtual partitions?

I wouldn't necessarily expect that to work, say, for a disturbed root
partition in your scenario, but I *have* seen LSI controllers causing
some Linuxes to remount read-only on RAID degradation, and I could just
remount the non-root partitions then.

Given that your filesystems may have been damaged more or less severely,
fsck'ing (and hence rebooting) is really the better course of action
here, though.
