The reason I did not send it directly, but sent it to Andre for proper
fix, is that the error is all over the place, this is from ide-cd.c

static void ide_cdrom_add_settings(ide_drive_t *drive)
{
int major = HWIF(drive)->major;
int minor = drive->select.b.unit << PARTN_BITS;

ide_add_setting(drive, "breada_readahead", SETTING_RW, BLKRAGET, BLKRASET,
TYPE_INT, 0, 255, 1, 2, &read_ahead[major], NULL);
ide_add_setting(drive, "file_readahead", SETTING_RW, BLKFRAGET, BLKFRASET,
TYPE_INTA, 0, INT_MAX, 1, 1024, &max_readahead[major][minor], NULL);
ide_add_setting(drive, "max_kb_per_request", SETTING_RW, BLKSECTGET,
BLKSECTSET, TYPE_INTA, 1, 255, 1, 2, &max_sectors[major][minor], NULL);
ide_add_setting(drive, "dsc_overlap", SETTING_RW, -1, -1, TYPE_BYTE, 0, 1,
1, 1, &drive->dsc_overlap, NULL);
}
