Hmm... This is not the case on my Linux box.
eject will use O_NONBLOCK when open, which would results in the
following code path:
sr_block_open
cdrom_open
cdi->ops->open(sr_open)
done

Maybe your eject is old and doesn't use the O_NONBLOCK flag?
If it is the case, then we may need to avoid this solution since we
can't depend on the user space tools.

Right, so, not an option.

Sounds like pretty complicated :-)

Yes, the udisks-daemon will constantly open the ODD's block device,
dunno why it would do this, need to check its code later.

Another problem I can think of doing suspend/resume in open/release is,
it's not that easy to determine if we should suspend the ODD in release
function. We may need to do some extra house keeping to achieve this
based on information like if the door is open and/or if there is media
inside, etc.

Thanks,
