The USB ID claimed by zd1211rw for the fake storage device is
also in use by other, non-zd1211rw devices (Sphairon Homelink

where all the needed infrastructure already exists: usb-storage.

We can do the eject (as other mode switches) in userspace. Previous
discussions pointed into that direction.

When I originally wrote this code this wasn't as easy as you might think - the virtual CD device seems to be very quirky, and utterly confused Linux to the point where it didn't even create a device node. Maybe linux is more flexible these days though.
