Just got started with ppdev - it's great, just what I needed for some
hardware hacks. And thanks for the back-porting it to 2.2.17, it
saved my day...
A few comments:
- The patch-2.2.17-ppdev1, when applied to a stock 2.2.17 kernel,
doesn't compile on Alpha. It needs #include <linux/delay.h> in
linux/drivers/char/ppdev.c; the code in the patch only includes
asm/delay.h. Haven't tried it on Intel yet.
- PPCLAIM immediately touches the control lines. That's too bad, as
it is sometimes handy to be able to claim a port without changing
its state. I would like to be able to defer initialisation until
deciding to use one of the ieee protocols or not.
Okay, minor nits. I'm happy already.
