this patch autodetects LPT ressources.
This eliminates the need to specify irq=x
and dma=y manually for parport. This has always
been annoying and error-prone for users!
Any experiences with calling a pre-ACPI PNPBIOS
to get these hints, too (I assume Windows found irq
and dma without much effort already for a long time) ?
Please test and report.
If successful you get:
20:24:05 linux kernel: parport: PNP0401 found by ACPI: io=0278,0778 irq=5 dma=1
Note: 0x778 is a negligible bug on my "ASUS P3B-F ACPI BIOS Revision 1007 Beta 001"
When setting to non-ECP in BIOS setup:
20:17:54 linux kernel: parport: PNP0400 found by ACPI: io=0x0378 irq=7 dma=No
