Me too.

ppc0 port 0x778-0x77b,0x378-0x37f irq 7 drq 3 on acpi0
ppc0: SMC-like chipset (ECP/EPP/PS2/NIBBLE) in COMPATIBLE mode
ppc0: FIFO with 16/16/16 bytes threshold
Interrupt storm detected on "irq7: lpt0"; throttling interrupt source

I've tried setting interrupt storm threshold and even forcing
ECP with BIOS.

Nothing works, my printer is still printing slowly. I guess, I'll
try the SMP method next time I compile the kernel.
