It prints a lot. I am currently out of LAN cable, and I rather don't want to
rewire.

So, what I essentially found out is that once I `modprobe ide-cd`, the drive is
recognized and udev creates the device node. Yeah that sounds like an
interesting "problem" -- I do not autoload cdrom.ko and ide-cd.ko because I do
not use the CDROM drive often on that box, and I see that as a good thing
because so it does not waste kernel memory. Solution? It would be nicest to
find out there is a CDROM drive without loading ide-cd/cdrom. That maybe does
not work. So probably autoload cdrom/ide-cd when the add-ide-bus udev event
happens, and unload it again if no CDROM drives were found.
