Current CDROM detection is hardcoded based on source file name.
Make this smarter by attempting a CDROM specific ioctl.

This makes '-cdrom /dev/sr0' succeed with no media present.

v2: Give ioctl check higher priority than filename check

Looks good.  We'll now get an open each from the cdrom and floppy
drivers for each image we're trying to open, but I guess that should be
fine.

A theoretical problem, that applies to all devices detected in this way:

A few ioctl values (the integers which the names expand to) overlap
between different devices.  It's not policy but it has happened.  This
shows up in strace sometimes, for example on Linux the isatty() C
library function uses TCGETS, but in strace it shows as:

    SNDCTL_TMR_TIMEBASE or TCGETS

I tried isatty() on Linux sound devices and it seemed to be reliable anyway :-)

But, in theory, on some host or other, the CD-ROM and floppy checks
could do accidentally do something else on the wrong sort of device.
I don't know how assiduous hosts are about keeping the number spaces separate.
