Actually my raw_getlength() patch makes using a real cd-rom work again with 
QEMU on Mac OS X. Even with the patch, there is some code that is preventing 
the real cd-rom from ever being used. I wasn't sure what you meant by released 
from moderation. I do know that QEMU 2.2.0 doesn't have this problem, so the 
issue is very recent. Hopefully we can eliminate it from the repo before QEMU 
2.2.1 is released.
