* Cups-pdf creates empty output pages after upgrading to ghostscript 9.54.0.
* /var/log/cups/cups-pdf-pdf_log says "ghostscript has finished: 256"
* Background: as of that ghostscript version ".setpdfwrite" is no longer supported (refer to
-- however, it's still in the default setting for "GSCall" and it's also listed
in /etc/cups/cups-pdf.conf.

Additional info:
* package version 3.0.1-5

Steps to reproduce:
- print to cups-pdf printer
