it seems one cannot have both the drivers for Gracilis PackeTwin and for
parallel port tape drives on the same machine. Both modules have the name
"pt.o". Of course I can compile one after the other and copy them to the
/lib/modules, but there still could be problems with kerneld.
Of course it's easy to rename one of the modules, but I think this is a
general problem. Should we require module names to be unique even when the
drivers are in different directories?
