    Also there are problems with kernel-command line parsing; at the
    moment it's all done by the main parport module, and parport_pc gets
    to know about it afterwards.

    It's a _mess_, and isn't very extensible right now.

    I suppose one way of dealing with this particular problem is to get lp
    to increase the timeout on its own (using parport_set_timeout): would
    that have the desired effect, or is it the wrong timeout?
