Package: lirc
Version: 0.9.0~pre1-1
Severity: important


There are several problems with lirc_sir driver.

*) lirc_sir module from the kernel (3.2, 3.3, 3.4) doesn't work. I've
   described thin in the #680762 kernel bug.

*) lirc_sir module from the 0.9.0 and git source doen't compile with 3.4
   due to absence of asm/system.h (asm/system.h: No such file or directory)

*) lirc_sir  module from the 0.9.0 compiles and loads well with 3.2
   kernel, but lirc userspace doesn't work:
   lircd-0.9.0-pre1[15978]: could not open /dev/lirc0
   lircd-0.9.0-pre1[15978]: default_init(): Device or resource busy
   all other problems, which use /dev/lirc0 directly (xmode2, mode2,
   irrecord) also show the same problem.
LIRC modules and tools from git repository works fine with 3.2 kernel.
