That's fine.  As it turns out, I've had additional discussions with Mike
Meyer and Matt Jacob and Mike will probably be implementing MMC CD-R
support.  That ioctl will probably be a part of it.

The functionality you're looking for is part of a larger issue of
supporting CDDA reads in the cd(4) driver.

That's needed to support AudioFS.  (As well as to support doing a straight
read off the CD when an audio CD is in there.)

The main problem is that different drives use different commands to read
audio data.  MMC-compliant drives are one case, but there are a lot more
drives out there that use varying methods to read audio data.

It'll also take some tweaking to get the driver to support blocksizes that
aren't multiples of 512 bytes.
