ah, that did it. now i get

parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778), irq 7, using FIFO \
[PCSPP,TRISTATE,COMPAT,ECP]
parport0: cpp_daisy: aa5500ff(38)
parport0: assign_addrs: aa5500ff(38)
parport0: cpp_daisy: aa5500ff(38)
parport0: assign_addrs: aa5500ff(38)

upon loading of parport_pc and no oops when unloading (tried it several
times, even with a tainted kernel.)

you know, even tiny patches like this (a single line changed!) look
quite incredible to a non hacker (me). with this little bits of
information i gave you, you produced a working patch. this is...totally
cool, really.


Thank you very much,
Christian.
