Sorry Francois, I had read your email but missed the bottom half of your
patch.  I've altered the patch so it just augments yours. Now it just adds
the configure test for the timeout member, defining HAVE_CDROM_TIMEOUT if
it exists.

  Add test to check if cdrom_generic_command has the timeout member.

NB configure and include/ must be regenerated after this patch.

True, but I was anticipating that this might be set to some other value in
the future. Having the test would illustrate the potential problem, but
I think you're right to get ride of the assignment.

I think the bug is lack of support in earlier kernels, which we have
limited control over.  We could issue a warning during the configure stage
that there might be problems with CDROM drives, but if wine uses features
only present in recent kernels, then there will always be this "sweeping
bugs under the carpet" problem ... e.g. kernel-2.[56] support for EA and
hidden files.
