Its effectively the same thing, just one extra line. The 'none' says
to not enable *any* decoders, then the '+lirc' says to add lirc to
the enabled decoders. Simply echoing 'lirc' in says to only use the
lirc decoder.

I've tossed it into /etc/init.d/lirc, at the end of the start()
function, which is where it'll be in the package update I'm planning
to do.

Cool, glad its finally back to behaving. Sorry for the mess... :)

In related news, this kernel is headed over to F14 updates-testing
tonight, so 3rd-party repos should have all add-on modules build for
it soon as well.
