Tried it, works fine. I've tried to print whith the printer off, on, with
paper, without paper, all worked fine.

BTW, I discovered that the tmw patches are not necessary for the
daisy-chaining to work. Actually, all went well without tmw, except that
the imm module is still not autoloading and that the parport module is not
autoloading too when I do a "insmod imm" :-(
