parport_pc tries to load parport_serial automatically

parport_pc is now trying to load parport_serial.o at init_module() time.
If the initialization of parport_serial fails, we obviously get an error
message, which is really annoying:

0x378: FIFO is 16 bytes
0x378: writeIntrThreshold is 16
0x378: readIntrThreshold is 16
parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778) [PCSPP,TRISTATE,COMPAT,ECP]
parport0: irq 7 detected
insmod: /lib/modules/2.4.5-5cl/kernel/drivers/parport/parport_serial.o: init_module: No such device
insmod: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters

Why it tries to load parport_serial ?
