I should also point out that, in addition to being a kludge, the version I
posted has the lirc portion commented out because, on that particular backend,
it only had one IR port, so no futzing with /dev/lirc was needed.

On another backend, I had a PVR-350 and a WinTV card, both of which had IR
ports, and the eye was connected to the 350.

It's also a work in progress, but definitely fixes the /dev/video and
/dev/radio problem for me.

I wrote this the day after having spent the previous entire day trying to fix
the problem the "right" way and not quite figuring it out.
