    SubjectRe: [PATCH] to drivers/parport/ieee1284_ops.c to fix timing dependent hang
    Jeremy,

    Good to know someone has read my email.

    According to my reading of the code, it should only happen in polled
    mode, but I have only one week of experience looking at kernel source.

    So it should be a work-around, assuming interrupts work on the parallel
    port on your system :-). It is an very vexing problem, as I'm sure you know.

    By the way, LJ1100s tend to get page feeding problems about the time the
    warranty runs out, but HP has a free kit you can order to fix the problem.
