Eventually, I had a cp, a couple of ls's an a zsh stuck
variously  in vnlock and uvn_fp2 states, I rebooted; and
'reboot' got stuck in vnlock, too.  This is a Bad Thing.

It may be noteworthy that this CDROM has another issue under
NetBSD: the disk access light comes on when you boot, and
doesn't go off until you first access the CDROM.
