Bug#323155: Please enable "atapicam"

Package: kfreebsd-5
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch


Please could you enable the atapicam device in the generic build?  It is
necessary to burn CDs using ATAPI cd-writers.

It is strange that upstream didn't enable it by default, but I've tested it
(burned CDs with it, etc) and haven't seen any odd effects.
