  If floppies are used to boot the machine, the user lets the machine
  complete the boot and enter into sysinstall, and only then inserts
  a CD into the CDROM drive and tries to select that as the install
  media the first call to mount(2) generates EIO but the second call
  to mount(2) will succeed.  This was 100% reproducible on 6.2-RELEASE,
  RELENG_6, and HEAD.  If the user inserts the disc into the CDROM
  while the machine is booting off the floppies the first call to mount(2)
  succeeds with no problems.  The problem was originally reported in
  PR #56952 against 5.1-CURRENT so it's been there for a while now.
