Well, booted into 2.6.11-rc2-bk2 (ACPI config'd out) and my
first growisofs session decided to die at 60% with the usual EIO :/

The fun thing is that retrying now shows growisofs calling a
HUGE amount of these babies...

[root@donkey tmpburn]# strace -p 2337
...
ioctl(5, SG_IO, 0xbffff7d8) = 0
ioctl(5, SG_IO, 0xbffff7d8) = 0
ioctl(5, SG_IO <unfinished ...>
Process 2337 detached
[root@donkey tmpburn]# strace -c -p 2337
Process 2337 attached - interrupt to quit
Process 2337 detached

100.00 7.762805 32445 total
while sitting in its initial prompt:

[root@donkey tmpburn]# growisofs -Z /dev/hdc=myfile.iso
WARNING: /dev/hdc already carries isofs!
About to execute 'builtin_dd if=myfile.iso of=/dev/hdc obs=32k seek=0'
Sleeping for 0 sec...

It looks like every kernel has its own :(
