Not sure what's up with that. No problems here:
# lsmod | grep lirc
lirc_i2c 13316 2
lirc_dev 18660 1 lirc_i2c
i2c_core 27841 10 lirc_i2c,msp3400,saa7127,saa7115,tuner,ivtv,tveeprom,i2c_voodoo3,i2c_algo_bi
# uname -a
Linux lazarus.email-scan.com 126.96.36.199-41.fc7 #1 SMP Fri Jul 27 18:10:34 EDT

Sounds like lirc was miscompiled. Compiling lirc against the right kernel
version is tricky. The lirc_registered_plugins and lirc_unregistered_plugins
messages are symbol versioning warnings, not errors. It's a known issue,
lirc's Makefile is broken. I tried to tell them how to fix it, over a year
ago -- but I don't think anyone heard me :-(.
