I had the same problem.  I noticed that if I modprobed the alias
(char-major-61), it would load lirc_dev, and NOT lirc_i2c.  Maybe they
changed device numbers?
What I ended up doing is forcing load of lirc_i2c on load of lirc_dev
- its still a hack, but at least its a one file hack =)

alias char-major-61 lirc_i2c
alias char-major-81 videodev
alias char-major-81-0 ivtv
install lirc_dev /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install lirc_dev;
/sbin/modprobe lirc_i2c
install lirc_i2c /sbin/modprobe ivtv; /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install lirc_i2c
