upps, sorry, that was silly. I changed it to:

floppy->wp = !!(pc.buffer[3] & 0x80);

How about we get rid of that chunk altogether? floppy->flexible_disk_page is
used only here for the purpose of printk-ing to the syslog and has no "real"
purpose otherwise. Do we need that info spewed into the syslog at all?
