I had luck on 10.04 (LTS) installing an 2.6.38 kernel from some kind of ppa
backport and using the lirc_zilog with a module option to only do transmit.
I did not update lirc.

The 2.6.38 upgrade was required just to get the never version hd-pvr

The transmit only module option removed the errors from dmesg and I have
been running this way for over 3 weeks with no errors or missed changes.
