I honestly don't know the first thing about Ubuntu, but ironically  
enough I had this same problem last night. My machine hard-locked and  
I needed a reboot - forgetting that I had updated the kernel and not  
rebooted. So when it came back I needed to install the kernel modules  
for my new nvidia driver, lirc, alsa, etc. nvidia was it's usual try  
the latest, doesn't work, try 1 version back, doesn't work, try 5  
versions back, yay it works. But lirc never worked correctly until I  
finally uninstalled it and reinstalled (yes, the same version).  
Magically is started working. So maybe you can use apt to remove lirc  
and reinstall and see how it goes.
