Excuse me ? AFAIK we are the *only* OS with the CDIOCREADAUDIO interface.
I should know since I put the code in the ATAPI driver way back when our
device system couldn't handle != %DEV_BSIZE requests.

Anyhow, its been ages since it was announced that there is a new and
right way to grap audio, that noone hasn't cared about it, well...

So stop whining and get the port maintainers to fix the ports that
breaks because of this (it would maybe even reduce the diffs :) ).
