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):

How reproducible:

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! 

Additional info:

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.
