I am noticing odd after adding the atapi addition on my system.
Now, everytime there is a CD in the drive, its spinning. It seems
that the driver doesn't spin down the cd if its not in use.

I'll look into this more after I get a chance to print out the 
ATA3 documentation...

Its located at in /pub/standards/io/ata3/. In fact
the ATAPI docs are there too.

As for my drive problems, I know that upon bootup it never gets
through acdattach. Its dieing during the atapi_exec_cmd call.
Maybe this is causing it to go on a mode_sense trip? Would this be
the reason the cd is spinning all the time?
