I think it' s cleaner to have not to check for null every time, once it' s
been proposed also for the VFS and if I remeber well other parts of the
kernel use this policy just now...

The objective of arca patches is to allow people to try the tree I am
running that can contains good/needed or experimental eventually broken
code. Once I think that something is pretty important (and I have a bit of
time) I ask for inclusion.

It's used to set LP_WAIT(minor).
With the ieee1284 code it should change the udelay(1):
unsigned char val = (PARPORT_STATUS_SELECT
/* Write the character to the data lines. */
parport_write_data (port, *byte++);
^^^^^^^^ 1 -> LP_WAIT(minor)
/* Is the peripheral ready yet? */
if (!parport_wait_peripheral (port, mask, val))
/* Skip the loop */
