Subject2.6.8-rc3-mm1 & mm2 break k3b
I posted this on the Con Kolivas kernel list, and he suggested I post here, 
regarding 2.6.8-rc3-mm kernels. I'm no expert by any means, but have been
testing kernels since 2.5.67, and have posted about kernels on the Gentoo &
PCLOS forums, among others.

"Just tested the latest staircase7.I with 2.6.8-rc3 vanilla, and
2.6.8-rc3-mm2, and both work fine- no problems I can see so far on my test
box. However, 2.6.8-rc3-mm1 and mm2 both still break my k3b cd burning
software, with these errors (using cdrecord 2.1a33, on Gentoo) :

Unable to determine the last tracks data mode. using default
cdrecord returned an unknown error (code 12)
Cannot allocate memory

Sometimes it says to lower the burn speed, even when it's set to 4x (on a 48x
burner), but that doesn't solve the problem. I get the same errors.

This doesn't occur with all previous mm kernels (up to 2.6.8-rc2-mm2), or any
other kernel I've tried, and not with any ck patches, so I'm convinced it's
the rc3-mm patches causing this, and not anything ck." If I boot with other
kernels, same hardware, same config file, k3b works perfectly.
