Huh? And what, pray tell, makes cdrom special? Not to mention
the use of ioctl, the inherent raciness of the interface and the fact
that yes,

Or the possibility that
* mnt might've been freed by that point.
* we might have the damn thing mounted in several places, some
busy, some not.
* cdrom had been used not by mount.
* cdrom had been mounted just as we had decided to tell that it's
not busy.
