Just for the record, it was a KDE service daemon that caused these errors for
me, like a 24MB log in 12 hours:

KDED Media Manager

Also trying to remember, I had a CD-RW on /dev/hdc and a CD-R on /dev/hdd. It
was /dev/hdd that give those errors, but I only passed the SCSI emulation on
kernel line for the CD-RW.

So I suppose it uses similar code (of sorts) as HDPARM. I dunno.

The old drive was 6 years old anyway - so after I sussed the issue I pretend I
did an upgrade ;-)
