Subjectoops with 1.99.8
I received an oops while using 1.99.8. I was playing an audio CD
compiled as a module (mcdx) and I got an oops at a (seemingly) random time.

Now, the oops is in kerneld, so, I'm going to take a wild stab and
*guess* what may have happened: I was using workbone to play the CD. I
ran workbone, started the CD playing, then quit workbone. Is it possible
kerneld thought the CD was not in use and tried to remove it?

Here is the oops and as much info as I could gather following
/Documentation/oops-tracing.txt. I wish I could be more helpful, but I'm
barely within my level of competence as it is...:)

Here's it run through ksymoops:
