We can trust the returned multisession redirection value only if
xa_flag is set, as we see now. I know why I had commented it in
cdrom.h this way.
If a drive does not recognize a multisession disk as an XA disk
(necessary, says the yellow book), it is up to the driver to do
decisions which allow to fake the xa_flag or not. It is safe to
say "no XA disk" (so, only the first session is visible). No driver
should fake "yes, XA disk" without research.
