The current (2.6.6-1.370) RawHide kernel works with the tmscsim module
(from what I can tell).  The only thing I have attached to it is a
CD-ROM drive and so I can't tell if the problems I'm having are related
to that or the driver.  I can mount and read data CDs w/o a problem,
playing audio cds works but ripping them with cdda2wav and cdparanoia
does not (same problems others were having for IDE or USB drives). 
Ripping with cdrdao works, however. Since Sound Juicer uses gstreamer
which uses libcdparanoia to rip, none of those work either.

On a similar note: the firewire modules work wonderfully (YMMV) on my
Sony VAIO laptop, even hotplugging the CD drive works (well, the device
is detected and mountable, updfstab isn't run unless kudzu finds it on
boot).  Haven't tried burning with that yet, but it's on my list.
