Unfortunately I didn't have a chance to get access to SoundGraph iMON 
derived devices so far, but your proposed patch adds quite a bit of 
complex code to the init script which appears to be very specific to 
the iMON case, while not solving (and eventually worsen) the general 
problem of using several different lirc devices at the same time.

Looking at Jarod Wilson's (new lirc upstream) blog[1] however suggests 
that lirc isn't even necessary for your device at all, could you take
a look at [1] and confirm if that would solve your problems as well?
