This patch doesn't change things for me. The server doesn't hang
indefinitely, but in waits for about 2 minutes (as it did before the patch)
after writing:

acd0: CDROM <WEARNES CDD-1020/B1.0> at ata1-master PIO3

to the screen. Then it carries on as though nothing had ever happened.
During the 2 minute delay, the floppy disk light is on, but I don't hear
the burrrp-buzzurrp[1] sound that the floopy disk usually makes when it
is probed without a disk in it.

[1] that's a technical term that I might have to explain later to interested
