Latest git snapshot fully detects the drive and reads media correctly, but there is still a noticeable delay when there is no medium present when accessing the drive. Can something be done about this?

GRUB is not able to access my CD/DVD drive. From the debug messages, the AHCI driver appears to detect a second device, but attempts to access it time out and it's not reported in ls output. On the hard disk, the driver performs as expected.
