problems with parallel port IRQ detection

does anyone have a solution for this? in 2.0.x, both my palmtop PC110
and my desktop machine have no problems using PLIP. if I boot either
to 2.1.x (I've tried for most x>60) PLIP reports detecting IRQ 8 for
the first port (should be 0x378/IRQ7) on both of them. trying to use
modules for all the parallel port stuff and plip and forcing the irq
as an option to insmod doesn't seem to work either. What useful
information can I report to help the parallel port gurus to track this
