The effects of the bug are seen when using wodim (or cdrecord)

[patch snipped]

Thank you very much! The patch you supplied fixes the regression!

What do we need to do in order to get this patch applied in
mainline so that the regression gets fixed?

To be honest, I was expecting a few replies from the appropriate

my regression report.

Nevertheless, thank you again for your attention/kindness.

Regards,
