Committed with a change to check that the driver is one of da, sa, or cd
when the bus type is USB (we now have ATA USB support as well).  I also
changed the cdrom variable name to scsi_device as we aren't necessarily
dealing with cdrom devices in all cases.  The functionality should not
be changed, though.  Thanks for doing this.
