Fwd: CD-ROM drive locked? (fwd)

Could the people having problems with IDE/ATAPI cdrom door locking (as well
as those not having problems) try out this patch and see if this fixes
things for them? If you try this, please let me know if it works for you,
so I can know if this should go into the kernel. I have not yet tried it,
since I am too busy right now to even breathe.

Hi Erik,

I don't know if this is the best way to solve it, but it will probably work for most scenarios.
