Hi guys,

I've sent Linus a couple of patches. They can be found at:


I don't think anyone will find them controversial.

The first (from Phil) fixes parport_pc module parameters, and enhances lp
module parameters so that you can force old behaviour with
"parport=none,0" (instead of "-1,0").

The second makes parport_yield_blocking useful. Having recently learned
that I only have a hazy grasp of the implications of calling "schedule()",
would someone like to give me a clue about whether it should be done in
parport_yield (the non-blocking one) as well?
