Yeah, the Fedora 12 patches are too old for 2.6.34. The latest bits
are patched into the Fedora 14 kernel tree. Not sure if the F13 bits
would work or not (2.6.33.x atm), but the F14 bits are definitely
unchanged since 2.6.34.


(As an aside: hell yeah, we finally dumped cvs for the fedora
packaging scm, make the cut-over to git this past week)

Look at branch f14/master, get hdpvr-ir-enable.patch (patches hdpvr.ko
to enable the IR part) and you can extract lirc_zilog.c from either
lirc-staging-2.6.36.patch, or get it from my lirc git tree, over here:
