You don't need anything in modprobe.conf since the kernel module is just
the standard usb-serial module. /etc/sysconfig/lirc file attached.

I have this udev rule to provide a consistent location for the usb-uirt
device, put it in /etc/udev/rules.d/10-local.rules:
# Match USB UIRT remote control receiver/sender, which appears as a ttyUSB
# device
BUS=="usb", KERNEL=="ttyUSB*", ATTRS{product}=="USB-UIRT", SYMLINK+="usb-uirt"

# Note: in addition to these parameters, you need to have working    -*- sh -*-
# configuration file for lircd (and lircmd if enabled).

# Options to lircd(8).  Typically, at least a remote controller driver
# ("-H foo") needs to be specified here.  Run "/usr/sbin/lircd -H help" to get
# a listing of supported drivers.
LIRCD_OPTIONS="--driver=usb_uirt_raw --device=/dev/usb-uirt"

# If "yes", the init script will try to start lircmd(8) too.

# Options to lircmd(8).

# Options to irexec(1).
IREXEC_OPTIONS="--daemon /var/lib/mythtv/.lircrc"
