lirc blocks kernel26 upgrade to 2.6.32.

Additional info:
My apologies if this is a frivolous bug report, as I realize kernel 2.6.32 is in testing. Just wanted to make sure that the people that need to know are aware.
This task depends upon

"Broken binary modules:
- lirc still needs to be patched, though no fix available yet."

I can confirm this. In other to upgrade we need to remove lirc. Re-installing is not possible, not compactible with 2.6.32

Ahh, I should have checked the mailing list, my apoligies.

According to the lirc mailing list, someone has commited a patch to allow for compile, this was commited by the lirc devs. I have attached the patch, I need to run to work, but I'll test it when I get home.

See post here: http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_name=4B187EAF.3080206%40gmail.com

EDIT: I've attached the diff from the lirc CVS repository which differs from the attached patch from the mailing list. I can't seem to delete the previous attachment, so this patch is appended with _dev_backport.

EDIT2: Doh, attached the wrong file. Could someone delete the other attachments for me?
