Awesome.  This works now.  I made adjustments in the lircrc file and
all the keys work correctly with myth now.  This means I can actually
run a current kernel, so very cool.

Now, (hopefully just) one more question.  How do I get the module to
load up automatically and the keymap to load in automatically?

I still need to manually load the module on reboot by doing this:
 modprobe ir-kbd-i2c debug=1

I then need to load the keymap by doing this (I created a new keymap
file called haupp2 so I could mess around with the non-original file):
 ir-keytable -c -w /etc/rc_keymaps/haupp2

By the way, this is the first line of the file; I thought it had a
hash mark before the title, but I either I was wrong or I removed it
accidentally (does it need to be there?)
[root at localhost ~]# more /etc/rc_keymaps/haupp2
 table haupp, type: RC-5

At any event, it works well now and I am able to live with manually
loading these things for the time being, but would really like this to
automatically start.

Also, do I need to edit my lirc.conf file in modprobe.conf.d to remove
i2c stuff?  This is currently in there:

alias char-major-61 lirc_i2c

Again, thanks for your help.  I am concerned about what happens when I
move to a f15 or f16 kernel (more likely the latter as I do my updates
around thanksgiving when the version I am on EOLs) and if my keymap
file will be wonky again.
