Subject[PATCH] Add MOUNT_STATUS ioctl to cdrom device
Hi,

This patch add a new ioctl MOUNT_STATUS to the 2.4 kernel's cdrom
device. It'll be used as an API to query the mount status of a
cdrom :-

CDROM_MOUNT_STATUS
Return :-
0 = not mount.
1 = mounted, but not in-use. It is ok to umount.
2 = busy. Umount will result in getting EBUSY.
<0 = error.

This same functionality can be done in user-space, like the way
'fuser' do, but doing so in kernel-space is simpler and faster.
The ioctl can (will) be used by automount daemon to query the
device to see if it is in use or not and lock/unlock the drive
as needed. This will make the cdrom "eject" button work as it
should be (as auto-umount button). Novice GUI users usually wonder
why they can't eject cds even when the discs are not in use.

An experimental implementation has been done and working on my machine.
I'm completely new to kernel hacking so please make comments about
this patch and whether it's justified or plain stupid to add another
ioctl for this feature cause I really have no idea.
