#51 Raw read "WARNING: Found L-EC error ..."

When reading some CDs in raw mode:
cdrdao read-cd -v 8 --read-raw --read-subchan rw_raw 1

I get long strings of:
"WARNING: Found L-EC error at sector xxxx - ignored."

The read progresses slowly, but it does seem that the
sectors do get read and a disc written from this read
session will work.

When raw reading and subchan raw reading is specified,
is there any reason to display an warning message of
this sort? I started to look into this myself, but I
can't find this string in the cdrdao codebase. Could
this error come from the lower layer scsi drivers? I
didn't find any such error in the Linux kernel, so I
don't know where it might be hideing.

System: Linux 2.4.19 with some old RH7.1 stuff (it
doesn't seem like a problem with my system, so I'm not
including a ton of details, if you disagree, I'll be
glad to dig into it some more.)

No 'bug', but it's slow an annoying. My question, I
guess, is "does it have to be?"
