[Bug 397734] Re: can't eject unmounted cdrom with hardware button

Kernel team, are you fine with making this change in karmic? (Switching
the default value of /proc/sys/dev/cdrom/lock to 0). They are currently
discussing making that change upstream.

If not, I'll hack it into a sysctl script somewhere, but it'd be both
subject to race conditions (see previous comment), and also just
busywork (shipping one default in the kernel, but unconditionally
changing it during boot).

Thanks for any comment,
