I would like to start a timer when the user presses the CD-ROM eject
button, and then reboot the system when the timer expires or the CD-ROM
tray is replaced, whichever is sooner. Can I use poll/select/kqueue to
listen for these media-change events? A quick scan of the SCSI/ATAPI
code tells me "no," but I am still hopeful.

Ditto floppy drives.
