Do not apply, there are better much solutions already:

This chip and much more is already handled (usermode)by:

PNPBIOS is superior at detecting your parallel port !
I asked the parport maintainer to remove superio from the kernel
when PNPBIOS makes it into the kernel.

PNPBIOS is not only a lifesaver on certain laptops (hanging otherwise)
but too on parallel port configuration which is currently a curse.

Drawback: Alan knows machines with bugs in their pnpbioses.
