  This is coming from the lack of SCSI ioctl support in the rz disk
driver.  The rz driver uses a different method of doing direct SCSI

  There is experimental support for the "machine-independant" SCSI
in -current.  You would need to get the current sources and build a
kernel with that support.  I don't know if anyone has tested xcdplayer
with this yet though.
