Are you sure this a problem related to the kernel and not simply the
permissions of the /dev/<whatever> for your burner and/or the
SETUID-ness of the 'cdrecord' program?

Install XCDRoast (there's a deb), and as root check out the setup menu,
it has a button somewhere under than menu that will change the
permissions of the needed programs as required.
