Do not apply, there are better much solutions already:

1)
This chip and much more is already handled (usermode)by:
http://home.t-online.de/home/gunther.mayer/lssuperio-0.63.tar.gz

2)
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.
