Sorry, I don't think I answered your question. No, you don't have to
compile modular to use DMA, but you do need to enable the right
options when you compile, as well as supplying the right parameters
when you boot, as well as supplying the right hardware (i.e. a chip
that can actually do DMA), as well as configuring it to enable DMA
(i.e. ECP mode).
So, enable CONFIG_PARPORT_PC_FIFO, boot with 'parport=0x378,7,3' or
whatever, and enable ECP in the BIOS. If it doesn't work, I need to
see the kernel message that parport_pc spits out as it loads.
