    I actually think that we should try to unite pc/fs error handling as much
    as possible as it shouldn't really matter if i.e. READ command came through
    fs or pc request - the error handling w.r.t. hardware should be the same
    (at the moment it is not always the case - the most blatant example of this
    disrepancy is handling of NOT_READY sense key for WRITE commands).

    When I was suggesting factoring out error handling I rather meant moving
    out _everything_ after OK_STAT() (sorry for the confusion). On the second
    thought we may do it in even simpler way by moving:

    ...
    /* check for errors */
    stat = ide_read_status(drive);

    if (stat_ret)
    *stat_ret = stat;

    if (OK_STAT(stat, good_stat, BAD_R_STAT))
    return 0;
    ...

    to cdrom_decode_status() users and passing as an argument 'stat' instead
    of 'good_stat' and 'stat_ret'.

    Therefore I skipped this patch (and also patch #4) for now.
