When you do a PPCLAIM ioctl, interrupts are turned on, so it ought to
work. Do the numbers go up in /proc/interrupts?

The FIFO will be used if you have compiled the kernel with
CONFIG_PARPORT_PC_FIFO enabled, told parport_pc which interrupt to use
with irq=X (or 'auto'), not passed dma=nofifo, AND parport_pc has
detected hardware that it can use.
At user level, you don't get to know about interrupts caused by FIFO
