I'm pretty sure this is due to a missing LSB dependency on $local_fs
for lirc's init script. A fix for this is pending, but right now
still blocked due to a larger change required to find an RC bug. It
would be nice if you could confirm that this change to /etc/init.d/lirc
fixes the problem for you as well, followed by:
update-rc.d -f lirc remove
update-rc.d lirc defaults 19
to make insserv actually reorder lirc's init script.
