Because any decettion daemons (udev, hotplug, discover, and so on) won't
care about lp module, I'd already added a module loading routine to
the parallel backend of CUPS (26_modprobe.dpatch).
Although I don't perfectly understand why lp won't be loaded on
submitter's machine, I suspect this is because we've dropped some of root
privilege from CUPS.
I'm bit considering about loading lp module from CUPS init script instead
of from the parallel backend.
