SATA DVD writer not detected by DragonFly
I upgraded my station for a i3-3220 chip with an H77 intel motherboard. I upgraded to the 64 bit version of DragonFly, the latest release DragonFly v220.127.116.11.g64f666-RELEASE. DF is not detecting my DVD correctly anymore. It's a SATA DVD from LG.
With the previous 3.2 version, the same DVD was detected correctly. It also is detected while booting from the DVD with DragonFly 3.4.
I tried to boot in safe mode, single user mode and got the same result.

I found accidently a workaround to this problem. With the latest version of DragonFly, 5.8.x, when a DVD is in the writer, it is detected at boot time. But when the DVD is not in the writer, then the device is completely ignore as if it wasn't there.
So it seems that in the process of detecting or connecting the device, when it's state is not with a DVD loaded, the device driver exits as if the writer is not present.
