    Subject2.0.35 parallell port very slow
    After upgrading to 2.0.35 (and 2.0.36 pre-patch 6) the parallell
    port is
    very slow. Ghostscript (Alladin) spent about 10 minutes cpu time
    for 200k
    to a Epson Stylus 800 printer. The problem is not with gs though.
    lpd showed
    the same symtom with a preformatted file.

    I have not tried pre-patch 7.

    After changing back to 2.0.34 it worked again.

    # cat /proc/cpuinfo
    processor : 0
    cpu family : 5
    model : 6x86 2x Core/Bus Clock
    vendor_id : CyrixInstead
    stepping : 1 rev 6
    fdiv_bug : no
    hlt_bug : no
    sep_bug : no
    f00f_bug : no
    fpu : yes
    fpu_exception : yes
    cpuid level : 1
    wp : yes
    flags : fpu
    bogomips : 119.60

    I have no experience in kernel development - I just think it
    would be bad if a fix for this would not make into the final
    2.0.36 release.
