    BKL was replaced by sr_mutex in 2.6.37-rc1.

    Wakko, you could try the patch from the mentioned thread and see whether
    it fixes your problem. But be aware that the patch opens possible race
    conditions between processes that access the same optical drive, e.g.
    applications vs. udisks-daemon. (I haven't noticed anything bad during the
    period of using the patch though.)
