Thanks for bringing this to my attention.  We no longer ship this plugin on
Solaris.  Now we use a plugin that interfaces with the /usr/bin/cdda2wav binary
directly.  Joerg Schilling added some interactive features to the cdda2wav
program so that our new plugin can start cdda2wav once, and the plugin can
interactively request sectors.  It works better than the ioctls since cdda2wav
uses USCSI interfaces and more reliably can read CDDA data from the drive than
ioctls can.

I originally posted this bug report because I thought other platforms might be
interested in making it work as a general simple ioctl-based plugin.  But,
since that doesn't seem to be the case, it's probably best to just close this
bug as will not fix.  I don't think anyone at Sun has an interest in using it
