If the paint is coming off onto the roller, it will probably come off if you simply dab at the surface with something sticky. When I've had a serious peeling problem, I've used adhesive tape as a first-pass before considering scraping or sanding; it can be a fast low-dust way to remove most of the loose material. Then come back with something more aggressive around the edges of those removed patches to make sure you've got everything that's loose.

Will try the adhesive tape trick this weekend and will give you feedback on how it works or not. Thank you everyone for your input on this awful problem.
