Bug#268621: kernel-source-2.6.8: breaks CDDA extraction.
Apart from the solved problems with cd-writing in 2.6.8 (memory leak
and requiring root permissions) there is another one:
It breaks cdda2wav quite heavily
cdda2wav -t 1 dev=ATA:1,0,0
(or dev=/dev/hdc) results in a heavily distorted audiofile. Repeating
the same command with the same CD under 2.6.7 produces a correct file
(no audible errors). It does not matter whether cdda2wav is run as
root or as user.
cdda2wav -paranoia seems to produce correct files even under
2.6.8 but it is also severly broken, it takes about 20 times as long
as under 2.6.7 (i.e. almost realtime) and CPU usage stays at 90% while
this is happening (instead of 20% under 2.6.7.)
