I have tested this patch.
Unfortunately, this does not work.

int fd = open("/dev/sr0", ...)
ioctl(fd, COMMAND)

Actually, the open() code path requires CDROM to be in active state, for example

sr_block_open
  cdrom_open
    open_for_data
       cdo->drive_status
         scsi_test_unit_ready
           scsi_execute_req

I'm thinking 3 solutions.

Solution 1:
sr_block_open() always return failure in ZPODD state.
But "eject /dev/sr0" won't work in this solution.

Solution 2:
sr_block_open() always return success in ZPODD state.
Then we have to insert ODD status check in many entries accessing it.
For example, sr_drive_status(), sr_check_events(),  sr_lock_door() etc.
And only runtime resume ODD for some special case, for example,
CDROMEJECT ioctl.

Solution 3:
Runtime resume ODD in sr_block_open(), as Alan suggested.
But the big problem is userspace will open ODD every seconds, so ODD
is frequently
resumed and we lose the expected power savings from ZPODD.

Any other idea?
