akpm's kernel trees have the ide-dma patch that enables dma in raw mode.
Works quite nicely but i'd only use it on really prestine cds. DMA by
it's nature doesn't give the best error reporting when dealing with raw
data cds like audio cds. I've never had a problem with it though, even
on cds with scratches.
