SubjectEJECT ioctl fails on empty SCSI CD-ROM
Apparently using the CDROMEJECT ioctl with kernel 2.4-testX fails on
a SCSI CD-ROM that does not have a disc in it. The errno returned
corresponds to the string ``No such file or directory.''

The Linux CD-ROM Standard states that CDROMEJECT opens the drive tray.
It does not mention any prerequisite such as media being present.

Is this the expected behavior? If so, I am curious to hear the rationale
behind it.
