The USB CDROM functionality is currently broken and the patch handles
just that, like the SD card workaround (qemuDiskBusIsSD). The whole
patch is

I offered my simple fix and don't have the time to implement the
proposed -blockdev based solution, after investigating Gerd's
alternative suggestion for the alternate fix.

That's it, no harm intended.


P.S. also, because currently the additional (probably QEMU / edk2) bugs
won't let me fix my LibreOffice build at this state anyway, so it seems
I'm far away from a working environment to fix my real problem.
