I'm trying to bring up xmcd on FreeBSD 2.1.0-RELEASE.  By default, it tries
to use /dev/rcd0c to communicate with the drive, but that results in a
bunch of "SCIOCCOMMAND ioctl failed: Permission denied" messages (even when
running as root).

According to the cd(4) man page:

	In addition the general scsi(4) ioctls may be used with the cd
	driver, if used against the fourth (raw/whole disk) partiton.
	(e.g. rcd0d)

but after creating /dev/rsd0d with "mknod rcd0d c 15 3" and reconfiguring
xmcd, I get "Cannot open /dev/rcd0d: errno=6"

Does anybody have this working with 2.1.0?
