As far as I know, the lirc_zilog module is already built and installed as
part of the Ubuntu 10.10 kernel, so why are you building it yourself?

lirc_zilog loaded, but it didn't bind to anything. I don't think Ubuntu's
hdpvr driver includes the patch to enable the IR part on the hdpvr. Now
*that* you probably actually need to rebuild.
