Thanks!  I'll probably try it even if the supplied config does work.  It's no fun if everything just installs automatically.

Enable debug in the lirc_gpio.c file:

-static int debug = 0;
+static int debug = 1;

(that's not a patch...), doing the above changes, should render _a lot_
of debugging output (such as the value of the GPIO Data Register...).
Playing with the remote you can hopefully find out what bits you should
use in your gpio_mask (if the Kworld in there is not good enough...).

hope this ramble helps,
