Don´t know if this is an upstream bug or gentoo-specific.

printer Kyocera FS-820 worked with cups 1.1
does not work with cups 1.2, because an ioctl in the usb-backend fails:

heinrich backend # pwd
heinrich backend # ./usb
heinrich backend # emerge -pv cups

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

patch for getting Kyocera FS 820 with cups-1.2 (kernel issue) based on kernel 2.6.18-r4

The patch modifies the file usblp.c in /usr/src/linux/drivers/usb/class/. It adds a line that marks Kyocera FS-820 as "quirky".
