time, but that code didn't use to work for me even though I have a chipset
which seems supported (Winbond 83977). These days, PNP (-ACPI) is providing
PARPORT with the needed info for me:

| pnp: match found with the PnP device '00:09' and the driver 'parport_pc'
| parport_pc 00:09: reported by Plug and Play ACPI
| parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778), irq 7, dma 3
| lp0: using parport0 (interrupt-driven).

If that's also expected, perhaps that option and code could just go...
