Description Andreas Schwab 2008-10-31 14:02:35 UTC
Latest working kernel version: 2.6.27
Earliest failing kernel version: 2.6.28-rc2
Problem Description:
There is no compat layer for CDROM ioctls.  For whatever reason this worked anyway with <= 2.6.27, at least good enough for hal to correctly handle it (it uses at least CDROM_SET_OPTIONS, CDROM_GET_CAPABILITY and CDROM_DRIVE_STATUS).

Looking closer I found 33c2dca4957bd0da3e1af7b96d0758d97e708ef6 (trim file propagation in block/compat_ioctl.c) which removes the compat handling for some of the cdrom ioctls.

Do I understand correctly that commit 33c2dca4957bd0da3e1af7b96d0758d97e708ef6 caused the problem to happen?

    [PATCH] trim file propagation in block/compat_ioctl.c

    ... and remove the handling of cases when it falls back to native
    without changing arguments.
