jvc cdrom drive

Hi all, 
I have a JVC MP-CDX1 cdrom drive that came with my laptop which used to
work with ide-cs but stopped working with newer kernels.

I added its ident to ide-cs.c (see patch below) and the drive now is
detected and gets mounted when plugged in and seems to work correctly.

But when I eject the card, pccardctl eject 0, the laptop locks up
completely, there are no messages in the log, and the fan goes to full
speed so I guess the cpu is running at 100%.
Any ideas what's going wrong or how to debug it ? 
Is there anything else I need to patch to get this working ?
