Hmmm, I am replying to something that is more than a year old...

I am trying to dd amiga floppies on NetBSD 1.6 and the kernel panics
from time to time.  I believe it is when I encounter a read error.
It also panics when I switch floppy and try another dd.  I have a
vague memory that it used to work ~6 years ago when I had my A3000 up
running NetBSD last time, cannot remember the NetBSD version though..

Message given on console is:
panic: biodone already
Stopped in pid 199 (dd) at     cpu_Debugger+0x6:     unlk    a6

Is there a patch/fix available?
