Actually you can. You can get a list of the supported modes as a bitmask, and
encoded into this is the hardware type (this could do with changing, actually,

So, if you want, you can do:

#ifdef __i386__
if (port->modes & PARPORT_MODE_PCSPP) /* all ports can do SPP :-) */
        /* Hey it's an 8255-like port, I can do this one in assembler */
        __asm__ ( ... );
        /* Do it more slowly */

David was going to do something like this for PPA too but I don't think it
ever happened.
