Anyway, with or without IRQs and IOs, PLIP is broken in 2.2.14.

When i noticed that (more than 2 weeks ago now) i found a patch on
some linux-kernel list archive. And now there is a bug report (#55383)
on kernel-source-2.2.14 with the patch included. I hope kernel
maintener will include it in his next release. (the patch is only one
line added... not a big deal...)
