I said I'd never seen this (true), but it could happen if you were
burning an audio CD using the ide-scsi or ATA: interface. In 2.6 the
ATAPI: interface uses DMA. I don't know what the program does if you
just say dev=/dev/hdx, I don't normally use it that way (I got into the
habit of using ATAPI:). Given a fast burner and the interface using PIO,
I guess you could slow the system down some!
