This series of WIP is also good for testing. But for next version of WIP
I need to know something from Jean about his i2c-parport.
For all other drivers using the parallel port, they are choosing which
port to use. But i2c-parport is not specifying that. So as a result, in
my test system which has multiple parallel ports, when I load the module,
i2c-parport is claiming all the ports with exclusive access. So if i
want to use i2c-parport on one parallel port and any other device on
another port then that is not possible. If that is the intended behaviour
then I need to change some parts in the way I was making the parallel
port device-model. Anyways, I have mailed Jean yesterday, and waiting
for his comments now. Adding cc to Jean also to this mail.

wow, share me the link please. I will also get one.
I am able to manage only one parallel printer and staging/panel for
testing. I am looking for a parallel port zip drive or cdrom or scanner
to manage and test the code better. but :(
