Anybody having IDE-CD problems with 2.1.10?

In Linux kernel 2.1.9 the ide-cd driver underwent major changes. I have
had a couple of reports of the cdrom door remaining locked on boot until IO
occurs, at which point the drive door becomes unlocked. This problem may
(or may not) be a simple hardware misconfiguration due to the removal of a
jumper on the drive.

Could people test out the ide-cd driver for me under 2.1.10 and let me know
of any problems (or successes). Do not test things under 2.1.9 since there
is a ide-cd module bug. Thanks for your help.
