Funny, the driver seems to think there's still an I/O operation to finish.
An eject request should probably be vetoed if the controller is busy, but
I think you'd also get this when ejecting while still mounted.
Anyway, the fd driver needs some more work as it also gets confused by
audio soft interrupts...
