"[sdX] Sense Key : Recovered Error..." messages every 30mn


Hello,

I'm worried about these kernel messages that occur every half an hour, following just the part for my sdc hd, but each burst contains messages relative to every hd I have in my computer:
Code:
May 31 19:09:23 localhost kernel: sd 8:0:2:0: [sdc] Sense Key : Recovered Error [current] [descriptor]
May 31 19:09:23 localhost kernel: Descriptor sense data with sense descriptors (in hex):
May 31 19:09:23 localhost kernel:        72 01 00 1d 00 00 00 0e 09 0c 00 00 00 00 00 00
May 31 19:09:23 localhost kernel:        00 00 00 00 00 00
May 31 19:09:23 localhost kernel: sd 8:0:2:0: [sdc] Add. Sense: ATA pass through information available
smartctl outputs look OK, I'm doing a "e2fsck -c -c -f -k -y" on every hd right now, i'm waiting the result in something like 12 hours...

After a couple of hour of googling, the only interesting pointer I've found is there, thanks to grepping the message in the kernel src dir... but I think it will take me a long time to understand this, so if somebody out there can tell me if I have to worry about these messages or not...

My configuration is:
Dell precision T7400 with SCSI storage controller LSI Logic / Symbios Logic SAS1068E PCI-Express FUSION-MPT SAS (rev 08)
sda: WD caviar blue sata WD5000AAKS
sdb: Hitachi Deskstar P7K500
sdc: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12
sdb and sdc are in software RAID mirroring
FEDORA 12 x86_64 up-to-date (kernel 2.6.32.12-115.fc12.x86_64)

Thank you

If "e2fsck -c -c -f -k -y" does not explicitly report any bad block, I hope that this means that there's no badblock? Because "e2fsck" just said something like "FILE SYSTEM MODIFIED" as a conclusion (I didn't record the result).
But now smartctl on sdc give me:
Code:

# 4  Short offline       Completed without error       00%         0         -
smartctl outputs on others hd look fine.

More over, I can see kernel these output:
Code:
ata_id[2892]: HDIO_GET_IDENTITY failed for '/dev/sdc'
ata_id[2891]: HDIO_GET_IDENTITY failed for '/dev/sda'
ata_id[2894]: HDIO_GET_IDENTITY failed for '/dev/sdb'
So, do I have to change sdc ?
