Odds are your problem is not the same as the one I just encountered
(you are using a serial ir receiver and I was using the one that came
with my pvr-350); however, it is possible.  Upgrading the kernel
enabled a new lirc driver that took over /dev/lirc0 and I had to
blacklist it.  You may want to do a lsmod |grep lirc to see if that is
happening to you.  Here is the thread that explains more with Jarod's
fix: http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/434728?search_string=lirc;#434728
