Well, it's trying to detect the floppy/cdrom device by comparing string
with default IDs that can be overridden by the user, so no, that's
probably far from the best way to do it. The code also doesn't consider
that you could have more than one floppy or cdrom drive.

The correct way is probably to just display any removable block device,
and ideally also to implement some notifiers to deal with hotplug.
