Start an audio cd playing, bang buttons on a tool like kscd at random and
you'll pretty soon get an error like "sbpcd-0 [05]: ioctl: cc_PlayAudio returns -22"

At this point anything touching the CD goes into state D and its reobot
and lock fsck time. It seems whatever the driver was trying to do it
forgot to set a timeout on it and stays stuck forever.

Genuine SB16 non PnP card
Genuine CDR562 CD-ROM drive

[and one copy of "Hawkwind the Business Trip Live" ;)]

the drive itself will let you eject and change the cd but this doesnt s
eem to wake up the CDROM driver
