Another cable and a small change in jumper settings did the trick.
It appears by DVD-rw drive has a firmware bug (or bad wiring/labeling),
normally when setting the jumper to CS (cable select) on both drives
results in 1 master and 1 slave, dependant on the position on the cable
(the one on the longer part is master). However in my case that results
in utter failure to detect both drives properly in BIOS. In the previous
situation, where k3b would lock up, I had the dvd-rom drive on cable
select and on the far end, while the dvd-rw drive was set to slave on
the middle connector. Both drives were able to read media just fine.
Now I have used another IDE cable and set the dvd-rom to master (far end
of the cable), and the dvd-rw to slave(connected to the middle one).
This setup appears to be working fine, the DVD-rw was able to burn an
audio cd, which is now playing fine in the other drive. I haven't tested
reading from that drive yet, but I assume it will work as well.

I still don't know what that was all about in the kern.log, so if anyone
could shed some light on it, that would be great. Although my problem is
solved, a similar message appears in the logs.
