parport irq question

It would seem that recent kernels have changed parport behaviour. It now
detects IRQs and then tells you that it won't use them until you explicitly
enable them in /proc. Sounds a bit silly to me. I'm now faced with having
to postexec something from modprobe every time parport loads, grep
something out of /proc/parport/0/hardware and echo it to the irq
'file'. Is there a way to force parport to just use the irq's it finds?
