Is this in 2.6.27, or was it a 2.6.28 addition? For some reason, I had
reports from openSUSE users that 2.6.27 still didn't work properly and
needed this driver.

How about the new "pcc-acpi-cdrom" driver hack? Hiroshi, is that needed
still with the 2.6.27 kernel?

Ok, I didn't know you wanted "uncleaned" drivers in your tree, I'll
remember this for the future :)
