Works here on the inspiron 5k. Parport detects its config correctly, even
after multiple loads/unloads, lspnp and setpnp seem to be doing the right
thing, parport detects the new parameters after changing them with setpnp.

Relevant dmesg output:

PnPBIOS: Found PnP BIOS installation structure at 0xc00f7230.
PnPBIOS: PnP BIOS version 1.0, entry 0xf0000:0xa610, dseg 0x400.
PnPBIOS: 17 nodes reported by PnP BIOS; 17 recorded by driver.
PnPBIOS: PNP0c02: 0xfff80000-0xffffffff was already reserved
PnPBIOS: PNP0c01: 0xe8000-0xfffff was already reserved
PnPBIOS: PNP0c01: 0x100000-0xbffffff was already reserved

parport: PnP BIOS reports device PNPBIOS PNP0401 (node number 0x16) is
configured to use io 0x0378, io 0x0778, irq 7, dma 3
[and then after 'setpnp 16 dma 1']
parport: PnP BIOS reports device PNPBIOS PNP0401 (node number 0x16) is
configured to use io 0x0378, io 0x0778, irq 7, dma 1

Thanks,
