I'm fdformatting some floppies.

Some times, I receive "device or resource busy" from fd0, altough fdformat
is the only process using the floppy driver (which is loaded with kerneld).

The message comes when I'm halfway during a format.
The formatting keeps going.

Kernel version is 2.0.4.

All The Best,
