I compiled a kernel with this patch and I see both serial and both
parallel ports in dmesg. I tested the serial ports and they work.
Unfortunately I don't have any device around to test the parallel
ports. You know, USB killed the pport stars.

sorry for that, I didn't know about the 1P4S version. This is the
reason why I changed netmos9855 entry directyl.
