Subject[BUG] 2.6.25-rc2-git3 broke cdrecord
On my main workstation (Intel P965 chipset, ICH8 SATA driven by ahci,
Samsung/Toshiba SH-203P SATA DVD writer, FC5 user-space), cdrecord
stopped working on the 2.6.25-rc3 kernel, with the complaint:

Warning: controller returns zero sized CD capabilities page.
Warning: controller returns wrong page 0 for CD capabilities page (2A).

There's nothing in dmesg to suggest that the kernel has experienced
some problem.

2.6.25-rc2-git2 was the last working kernel, 2.6.25-rc2-git3 up to
today's 2.6.25-rc3-git3 are all non-working.

I've narrowed the cause down to these two commits in 2.6.25-rc2-git3:

block: update bio according to DMA alignment padding

block: add request->raw_data_len

Four or so subsequent commits depend on the second of these, so it's
easier to test them by applying them to -git2 than to revert them.

Also, these two need to be treated as a unit. With only the first
applied, I get a massive delay as init tries to start udev, and then
if I try cdrecord it hangs in an unkillable state.

I've put some information in
- the kernel's .config
- cdrecord -VV dev=/dev/scd0 blank=fast output for 2.6.25-rc2-git2 and -git3
- strace -v logs for the above cdrecord runs
