Description of problem:
If you insert a blank cdrom in a drive the kernel complains that it cannot
recognize any tracks every two seconds.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.insert a blank cdrom in a CDROM drive
Actual Results: /var/log/messages contains:
Sep 8 18:46:07 overlord kernel: cdrom: This disc doesn't have any tracks I
Sep 8 18:46:39 overlord last message repeated 16 times
Sep 8 18:47:41 overlord last message repeated 31 times
Expected Results: It should shut up!
This problem may be caused by some process that keeps polling the cdrom,
rather than by the kernel. I don't know how to verify this.
The system is running a GNOME desktop.
