When ppc(4) is attached via ACPI, the hints in /boot/device.hints are
ignored, this places the parallel port in interrupt-mode by default.
Coupled with bin/57630 this effectively disables polled/extended mode
for lpt0.
I have this in /boot/device.hints

which works when booting without ACPI
ppc0: <Parallel port> at port 0x378-0x37f irq 7 drq 3 flags 0x3c on isa0
ppc0: SMC-like chipset (ECP/EPP) in ECP+EPP mode (EPP 1.7)
ppc0: FIFO with 16/16/9 bytes threshold
ppbus0: <Parallel port bus> on ppc0
ppi0: <Parallel I/O> on ppbus0
plip0: <PLIP network interface> on ppbus0
lpt0: <Printer> on ppbus0
lpt0: Polled port

But fails when booting with ACPI. Since ppc0 attaches to acpi0 I tried
changing the line to this
with no effect.
