Still haven't completely figured out what the solution is, but I think I 
know what's happening:

- kscd is hanging to the drive, even though there is no audio CD in there
- amd fails at the first attempt to read /dev/cd0c and fails on succeeding

However, even if I reload amd with 'killall -HUP amd' it doesn't show 
anything below /mnt/cdrom/. Perhaps there is some other file locked?

It has to be running, otherwise I wouldn't get the error messages, I 

This is in my /etc/rc.conf:

amd_flags="-a /.amd_mnt -c 3636 -l syslog /host /etc/"

And indeed it's running:

$ ps -ax | grep amd
   88  ??  Is     0:00.02 amd -p -a /.amd_mnt -c 3636 -l syslog /host /etc/

I did that and indeed kscd was hanging on it. I killed it and tried fstat 
again, and now I get:

$ fstat /dev/rcd0c
USER     CMD          PID   FD MOUNT      INUM MODE         SZ|DV R/W NAME

Nothing. Yet if I try to access /mnt/cdrom nothing happens.
