I just noticed this morning that I cannot mount anything in this CD drive. 
I have a CD-R drive at target 5 on my external SCSI bus that can mount CDs
fine, but the CD drive mentioned above gives I/O errors and can lock up
the machine if I try to mount it or run od on it too many times. I don't
know whether this happened with earlier 2.2.x kernels because I haven't
had to mount anything in a while. This CD drive mounted fine under the
2.1.x kernels.
