Re: set speed for Toshiba CDROM drive ?

Actually, the cm206 driver supports CDROM_SELECT_SPEED. I know
that several others _could_ support it if they wanted to. A good
example of one that _could_ support the CDROM_SELECT_SPEED ioctl but
doesn't is mcd. I am currently porting mcd (and eventually all the
cdrom drivers) to the generic cdrom driver as part of my overhaul of
the kernel's cdrom support, but I don't plan on bothering with
implementing this ioctl. At least not until later. Maybe. [GRIN]
