I didn't break it, but I can fix it.

Grab this tarball, unpack it, and use "make clean install".
Then reboot.  Presto, working lirc_serial blaster.


Mind you, it only works as well as the code therein.
I find it to be rather spotty when run on a busy mythtv system.
Sometimes it works, sometimes it only partially works,
depending upon how busy the rest of the system is.

Someday I really ought to write a proper implementation for this thing,
except I don't actually need/use it myself.
