OK, will rename it.

The problem is userspace(GNOME, for example) will check for events
every seconds.
If sr is power up so frequently then we lost the expected power
savings from ZPODD.

There are 2 events:

DISK_EVENT_MEDIA_CHANGE
DISK_EVENT_EJECT_REQUEST

In current implementation, if sr is in ZPODD state, then it means
there is no disk in the CDROM.
So if sr is in ZPODD state, MEDIA_CHANGE would never happen.

EJECT_REQUEST seems can be ignored, since there is no disk in the CDROM at all.

Let me check this.

Thanks for the review.
