Question Should I remove non-galv nails in shower?

I just realized that my sheetrocker, who installed the CBU in the shower, used standard sheetrock nails - not corrosion resistant. I am planning on adding hot-dipped galv nails, but should I remove the plain nails to prevent rust bleed through? If so, do I need to fill the holes or just put a new nail in them (these will be loose - not sure if that matters).

I wouldnt worry about it at this point. You will destroy the CBU more than any benefit you will gain. Just add the roofing nails.
