  • FYI, I've logged a bug - although no promises as to when it might be fixed.

    As far as LBA byte ordering goes, this from the CDROM driver:

    entry->cdte_addr.lba = ((uchar_t)buffer[8] << 24) + ((uchar_t)buffer[9] << 16) + ((uchar_t)buffer[10] << 8) + ((uchar_t)buffer[11]);

      Almost forget to mention: I'm happy this has been put on the (undoubtedly voluminous) to-do list. Naturally, this wont immediately solve all my problems. It's the same with Solaris as it is with Perl: after a bug has been fixed in a new release, you have to wait a few years until you can start relying on the fixed behaviour. Propagation happens slowly (consider how many perl5.005_03s or even older are still used in production).
