My USB floppy drive does not work. When connected, it is reported OFFLINE
(sd0 : drive offline) and I cannot write anything on it (I/O error),
though it will accept mount -t msdos /dev/sd0d. Curiously, I can read
from the disk.
Connect the IBM supplied USB floppy for i1200 Thinkpad series.
I have no clue about the protocols used on the USB interface, but if
anybody wants to enlighten me, I'll be happy to fix this bug.
