Problem Description:
   If 'parport_pc' is compile as a module, it fails to properly return certain
ioport resources after being removed.

Steps to reproduce:
    Debian GNU/Linux testing/unstable tvr-vaio tty1

Possible patch to parport_pc.c

It may not be that the release code is at fault; it looks like maybe
parport_pc_probe_port() has tentatively claimed it, then forgotten to
release it after not needing it after all.

Thanks for the bug report and the patch, it's currently in test9-mm2.
