    Well, /proc/sys/dev/cdrom/info will only show up when cdrom.o is loaded
    as a module, or compiled in. I havn't tried compiling ide-cd or cdrom
    into the kernel for quite a long while now. Can others verify that they
    also see this problem? Oh, one other thing... Do you have CONFIG_SYSCTL
    enabled? This file will only show up in proc if you have CONFIG_SYSCTL
    turned on.
