I have a mode 1 plip module working, but it's pre-parport (I'm still back
on a 2.0.36 kernel). Throughput isn't anywhere near EPP/ECP transfer speed,
but it's still better than mode 0; anywhere from 55-110KB. If this is of
any help, or if anyone wants to take this and use it as a basis for a
parport'able mode 1 plip, just give me a shout.
