Thanks Paolo.  Sorry for the delay in reviewing.

Can you explain this further?  How could a device register a BCV
that's not for a hard drive?  The BCV system is designed to allow roms
to be ordered when they hook the int13 vector - if they're not
registering a hard drive in that process it seems like a bug.
