transfer the burner to the Hurd box :-)

However, I hardly do any burning nowadays; so I'm not sure I would be a

Well, I for one use a real machine. However, it's an old Pentium3 box
with PATA. Modern machines are problematic...

Well, yes... The drivers are from Linux 2.0 -- not sure whether the
functionality they offer is suitable for modern use...

Not sure what you mean by that. There is nothing you need to change
about device_get_status() on the userspace side -- just invoke it with
the right parameters...
