    At ieee1284_ops.c, function parport_ieee1284_write_compat() is used to
    send data when compatible mode is on.

    At first it initializes the interface by asserting nInit and SelectIn low.

    After that it waits until the peripheral's nBusy is high (the device is

    unsigned char mask = (PARPORT_STATUS_ERROR
                                         | PARPORT_STATUS_BUSY);

    unsigned char val = (PARPORT_STATUS_ERROR
                                    | PARPORT_STATUS_BUSY

    if (!parport_wait_peripheral (port, mask, val))
                   /* Skip the loop */
                   goto ready;

    Why did it wait? Shouldn't it wait until nBusy is low??
