So what do you suggest instead?
Missing binary compatibility on Linux causes me a lot of headaches.
The only reason for this problem besides problems with the include files
could be the possible fact that someone from the Linux kernel team learned
that the correct errno for an illegal IOCTL is _not_ EINVAL but ENOTTY
... _and_ cdrecord is run on such a Linux kernel that does not understand
the SG_IO ioctl or the ioctl changed its parameter.
Would you call this a nicely backwards comapatible driver?
