I've just uploaded these:


(also available at <URL:http://www.cyberelk.demon.co.uk/parport/>)

IEEE1284 changes:

o Restored ridiculously long udelay in parport_negotiate, as it seems that
  some HP printers don't respond even slightly within spec. I'm not
  _sure_ that this is the reason; experts are investigating.

IEEE1284.3 changes:

o Put a comment at the top of parport_daisy.c explaining what the file is

o Port-cloning (as a result of finding a multiplexor) attempts to be a
  little more transparent than before. port->number is now unique again,
  while parports with the same port->physport will differ in
  port->muxport. (Got that? Good.)

  Things will still break if we find a multiplexor, because parport_share
  hasn't been told what to do about it yet. If someone who _has_ a
  multiplexor would like to step forward and make an issue of this, I
  invite them to do so, and also to tell me where they _got_ one from.

Have fun downloading.
