Hmmm. I'm doing

blk_queue_hardsect_size(drive->queue, sectors_per_frame << 9);

inside of cdrom_read_toc, is that not enough? Or do you mean that
I should only store it in the queue and not also in cdrom_state_flags?

I'll change that.

This happens on disc change, no other info is normally printed. But this
printk can probably go away, I just put it there for debugging.
