Subject[PATCH] lp.c, eexpress.c jiffies cleanup
Dear Philip, Linus, Alan,

one more jiffies cleanup patch to use comparison macros as pointed out by
Andreas Dilger on lkml.
I try to bundle files with the same maintainer to reduce email overhead.
If my procedure of mailing the maintainer as well as Cc:ing Linus and Alan
is incorrect, please drop me a short note.

In eexpress.c I also turned absolute jiffies number into multiples of HZ,
yet the resulting timeout values still do not always seem reasonable to
me.

Tim
