status from a USB printer

I'm writing a cups raster driver for a usb
I found a section in usb-unix.c that checks
on printer status. I'm a little confused,
how do I know that LP_PERRORP maps to what
my printer considers a fault? If I make a
change to usb-unix.c then I have to ship
a modified cups with my driver. This doesn't
seem like something I want to do.
Should I be adding ioctl commands to my cups
raster driver instead? Or is that the wrong
level to be doing that kind of thing. I'm
thinking here about pipes and filters when
I talk about level.
I'm still in the groping around stage.
