There are a few patches in my current development which prevent me from
uploading my current copy. I will back these out and try to get a new
ppa.tar.gz up on my web site.

Unfortunately I am scrambling to keep up with the "clean-up" of the code
since there are changes happening on several fronts:
        a) General kernel code
        b) SCSI sub-system
        c) Parport/lp changes.

I will be comparing the current state the ppa driver in the kernel with my
development code. Being dragged across the continent for my office job
doesn't help.
