SATA CD/DVD problems, now with ATACAM too

I reported some problems with SATA ODDs over the years and some weeks 
ago there was a big surprise: With the ATA to CAM patch I could use 
growisofs to write DVD images to my SATA drive.

Now unfortunately it stopped working:
(cd0:ahcich0:0:0:0): READ TOC/PMA/ATIP. CDB: 43 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 4 0
(cd0:ahcich0:0:0:0): CAM Status: SCSI Status Error
(cd0:ahcich0:0:0:0): SCSI Status: Check Condition
(cd0:ahcich0:0:0:0): ILLEGAL REQUEST asc:24,0
(cd0:ahcich0:0:0:0): Invalid field in CDB
(cd0:ahcich0:0:0:0): Unretryable error

I've seen this "ILLEGAL REQUEST asc:24,0" for 2 years protecting my SATA 
ODD from beeing used ;)

There are also reports that audio extraction stopped working recently.
Is somebody working on that?

I'd really love to see 8.0 shipping with working ODD support. If I can 
help by providing detailed error reports or by giving access to failing 
systems, just let me know.
