Okay, the questions I wanted to ask was if PPDATADIR does something else than
toggling bit 4 of the control register. I've taken a look into the parport_pc
sources and found it does nothing else, so I can stay in compat mode and a
user-land driver can perform compat-, nibble- and byte-mode operations
withouth problems if PPDATADIR is used to set bit 4 (I've seen it'd work even
if I just try toggling bit 4, but that's deprecated).
Thanks again... I'll try and shut up for some days (at least)
