Quoting myself. "Under Linux kernel 2.4 growisofs counts on sr_mod to
check the status byte." Clarifying note. Under 2.4 growisofs counts on
sr_mod to check the status byte and terminate corresponding ioctl with
error code. Does growisofs check for return value? Yes.

Quoting myself. "There is no reason whatsoever to believe that sr_mod
doesn't do the job, because if it didn't, growisofs would hardly work at
all, not even with IDE units." A.
