Quake and CD audio broken on Slackware Lunix 10.2 (kludge included)


When using Slackware Lunix 10.2 (kernel version 2.4.31), Quake's CD audio
does not seem to work, thanks to the rather ungeneric and otherwise broken
kernel interface which has a habit of rejecting system calls whenever it
feels like it.

Using some stolen code from WorkBone (Lunix-centric cdda player), which is
also licensed under the GPL, I have managed to throw together a
quick-and-dirty hack which uses a different access strategy; this has
solved said problem here. Since I prefer a more generic solution, which
probably won't be appropriate for the tree, I've decided to release a
patch now instead of polishing it further myself.


1) Rude merge of WorkBone code;
2) Very probably breaks non-Lunix builds;
3) Patch-time access strategy selection;
4) Mangled, obsolete, and/or absent comments;
5) Probably won't build on other versions and/or distributions of Lunix


1) Debug messages on by default -- see 'void Con_DPrintf' in
2) patch(1) with '-p1';
3) Depends on pkgsrc patches.
