module "lp" not loaded when parallel port detected

Hi, I've reported the following as bug #374145, and wondered if anyone else has experienced it?

On boot-up, the on-board parallel port is detected, but the last stage which includes loading the module "lp" doesn't happen until later.

Initial detection:

Jun 17 22:24:05 localhost kernel: parport: PnPBIOS parport detected.
Jun 17 22:24:05 localhost kernel: parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778),
Jun 17 22:24:05 localhost kernel: parport0: Printer, Canon BJC-3000

then about 25 minutes later:

Jun 17 22:49:46 localhost kernel: lp0: using parport0

udev doesn't create /dev/lp0 (needed for printing) until the last stage above.

The kernel is linux-image-2.6.16-2-686 version 2.6.16-14 on a PII-266 with Intel 440LX chipset.

My workaround was to add the line:


to /etc/modules.
