Hi Folks.

I am writing a driver for a parallel port midi interface. There are two
things I didnīt
quite understand:

After the irq handler is called by the parport implementation, I can
read data
from my device. Unfortunaly the irq handler gets called only once. I am
to read the rest of my data after reloading my module, because it is
queued in
the midi hardware. I think I need a way of reenabling irqs after irq
Is that right?

At module initialization I probe for the midi interface using a specifed
AFAIK I must not do something with the port until I claimed it. After I
the device, IRQs get enabled and I receive the data BEFORE the probing.
So I need a way to claim the device, probe for the midi interface and
(after success)
enable the IRQs. Do you know a way to achieve this?

Thank you very much in advance for your help.
