Oh, I see... the alias seems to be an implicit one, I don't have the
alias specified anywhere, mot 'modprobe -c' shows the alias.
Now there's another problem: ppdev.o will _not_ request parport_lowlevel
and therefore not load parport_pc. As far as I understood the code,
there's no call to parport_register_driver(), which would call
get_lowlevel_driver(), which in turn requests the module.
