Having recently had cause to use the comedi_parport driver on a PowerPC
board, I can say I'm very much in favour of this patch or one like it. I
had to modify the makefile so that it didn't require all the PCI drivers
to be built (some of which were failing - I really didn't have time to
fix them, sorry) to use a driver that doesn't necessarily have any PCI
dependency.

Even if there are a few dependencies missing, it seems like a step forward.
