As reported in my last message, the linuxcare sources are not using
Gibbs' latest patches, presumably because Linus hasn't approved them
yet.  The 6.1.5 driver included in that kernels doesn't work reliably
but the 6.1.8 driver does, at least for the one test that I just ran
(writing an iso image to a cd-r at 4x).  Can we get the 6.1.8 sources
into the linuxcare devel kernel?
