Well the patch works for me (Suse 9.1 / kernel 2.6.5). I presume ACPI doesn't 
provide any info on if EPP / ECP are supported so you still have to rely on 
the existing capability detection which doesn't like my motherboard. (It 
thinks EPP has got what the driver calls the Intel bug, even though it is an 
Athlon / VIA board - EPP works fine if I comment out the test).
