Well, it would be even _more_ acceptable to have a new Kconfig option that
just disables the insane parport registrations.

Them you could turn off the /proc files, and if it turns out you don't
have anything that uses it, you can avoid the warning by actually having a
smaller kernel with less crap, rather than adding more crap to hide the
crap. Wouldn't that be nicer?

It would have to be a Kconfig option since we don't _know_ that it's not
used by anything..
