I'm trying to determine if my cd-rom drive tray is open.  I think the
only way to do that in Linux is to use the CDROM_DRIVE_STATUS request
(an ioctl).  Writing the port to do that should be pretty easy, but I
figured I'd see if there was a way to do the ioctl directly before
learning how to write a port.
