Description

FreeBSD issue: https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=234460

That specific BIOS does not provide drive information with INT 13 ah=15h but at least the INT 13 ah=08 does report the error. In discovery phase, we need to validate INT 13 ah=08 result to build the list of floppy devices.
