Info: Sets the number of times the device driver is to try to send
output to the device before assuming that the device is busy.

DS:DX points to a 2-byte buffer that contains a 16-bit value
specifying the desired number of retries.

Notes:   This is used only for printer drivers that support
"Output Until Busy".  See Device Requests and DvRq 10H.

  This setting is system/global.  Before changing it, you should
use fn 440CH 65H to obtain the current value.  Change it back
before exiting.
