Disabling the parallel port?

I would say this is a separate and unrelated bug in virt-v2v: either
virt-v2v should enable the parallel port under KVM in the same way as
it is configured in VMWare (if that's possible) or it should
separately disable it.

The rest of the patch looks fine, but I'm leery of including the
change to the parallel port driver.

If we don't disable the parport driver what are the consequences?
Simply an error in a log file and an unusable parport?  Or is there a
more user-visible change?
