Why should' t we warn pardevice developers that LURK does mean nothing?
Should I change it in: printk("this is a harmless message:
parport%d...."); ;-)?

Note that parport internals changed ~one year ago and nobody in one year
has learn that LURK means nothing (they preferred to implement the null
preempt function instead). So I still think it' s needed (as KERN_DEBUG).
