PPA / ZIP problems in recent kernels.

I believe I have found the problem with the ppa driver for the parallel
port version of the ZIP drive. If I'm correct, it's one of those things
where you want to go and hide for a long time :-(

If you have been trying to use the driver and it has been freezing your
system, please try it with ppa_call_sched set to 0. (You can set this
variable with lilo or insmod - see README.ppa.)

Please let me know if this helps.

Although I'm not sure why most people didn't see this until very recent
kernels, I think the problem has actually been around for a long time.
