The patch seems to be mainly wrong. It is completly wrong define the
lp flags inside parport.h. These flags give us the semantic of how _lp_
handle the 8255 signal lines. How can be useful PARPORT_STATUS_PAPEROUT
for a parallel ZIP drive for example?

All parport_timedout() macro should be also moved into lp.h and all must
be renamed from PARPORT_xxx and parport_xxx to LP_xxx and lp_xxx.

This only after a short read of the patch...
