Very well so I can now define the new well defined semantic ;-).

I think that parport lowlevel developers will feel better without having
to play with spinlocks and other parport scheduling things and I' d like
to not produce code duplication. The way I implemented the call for
parport_examine_irq() (that is defined as return 0 here) got completly
optimized out from the asm if PARPORT..OTHERS is not set.
