The problem is that when you run pktsetup, the driver will open the cdrom
device and keep it open. A very long time ago, the driver didn't do that,
but that caused other problems, see for example:

http://herbie.ucs.indiana.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0407.0/0761.html

I don't know how to fix these problems in the kernel, but I know that an
old idea from Jens Axboe was to merge pktsetup and mount in user space so
that pktsetup only needs to run when you are actually going to use packet
writing.
