Success! I'm now able to blank DVD-RW several times without big problems,
but for some reason it takes about 50 seconds instead 0.2 seconds it
takes on DVD writer on my laptop (PATA, seems). But it works!
Writing works as well, but fixating takes about 400-500 seconds (it
varies). This is same for both DVD writers I own though.
Using verbose output with cdrecord shows that it's a "flush cache"
Track 01: Total bytes read/written: 5955584/5955584 (2908 sectors).
Writing time: 42.448s
Average write speed 0.1x.
Min drive buffer fill was 99%

Maybe it's normal? I don't have DVD-R/DVD+R medium at the moment to test
with though. There is a lot of "BOUNCING DATA" messages in dmesg
obviously. I think that these should stay, but moved under some CAM_DEBUG
