Can you please post the oops and your lirc related config [1]? While I 
have updated lirc's packaging in SVN [2], I do not see any change in 
lirc_serial/ lirc_dev which might suggest a fix for 2.6.25 related issues 
in lirc 0.8.3. Furthermore lirc_serial is working fine with 0.8.2-2 and 
kernel for me, it's lirc_i2c which oopses without patching (patch 
pending in svn, or rather obsoleted by 0.8.3).

Alternatively it would be nice if you could test current pkg-lirc svn [3],
or the experimental lirc 0.8.3 packages I've uploaded to [4].
