My impression is that the fourth argument to device_open is a send
right to the device...

... which is supplied as the first argument to device_read et al.

The device master port is a meta-device which is used to obtain send
rights to other devices.

Also, make sure that you add your lprread function to the lpr device
structure (i.e. along side lpropen).
