parport_read (in ieee1284.c) calls a low-level port driver's protocol
read function, depending on the currently negotiated protocol. So for
instance in reverse nibble mode it will call port->nibble_read_data,
which doesn't need a bidirectional port and so doesn't use
data_forward or data_reverse.
If the currently negotiated mode is reverse byte though,
port->byte_read_data will get called, which needs to turn off the data
line drivers (with data_reverse) before the peripheral drives them.
Is that any clearer?
