+Kernel driver i2c-parport-light
+
+Author: Jean Delvare <khali@linux-fr.org>
+
+This driver is a light version of i2c-parport. It doesn't depend
+on the parport driver, and uses direct I/O access instead. This might be
+preferred on embedded systems where wasting memory for the clean but heavy
+parport handling is not an option. The drawback is a reduced portability
+and the impossibility to daisy-chain other parallel port devices.
+
+Please see i2c-parport for documentation.
+
+Module parameters:
+
+* type: type of adapter (see i2c-parport or modinfo)
+
+* base: base I/O address
+ Default is 0x378 which is fairly common for parallel ports, at least on PC.
+
+* irq: optional IRQ
+ This must be passed if you want SMBus alert support, assuming your adapter
+ actually supports this.
