parport0: PC-style at 0x378 [SPP]

Note I have to do an insmod parport first before I can insmod parport
surprised me as I thought it was supposed to be autoloaded.

The problem is what gets autoloaded when I try and print
Case 1: No option on parport_pc in conf.modules
When I print something no modules get autoloaded

Case 2: io and irq options in conf.modules
parport autoloads
lp autoloads with dmesg error message 'lp: driver loaded but no devices
parport_pc does not load
nothing prints

Case 3: manual insmod with or without options
insmod parport
insmod parport_pc
insmod lp
Printer prints and works ok
