Description Pavel Šefránek 2013-04-17 11:09:04 UTC
If CONFIG_PARPORT_PC_FIFO is set to "y" parport driver is using FIFO everytime despite DMA is disabled in BIOS. This causes slow/stuttering printing through parallel port. 

When I turn DMA on or set CONFIG_PARPORT_PC_FIFO to "n" printer works as expected.
