Did you modprobe the lirc_serial module? You should see lirc_serial and
lirc_dev modules in the output of lsmod.
Be sure to load the lirc_serial module before the "normal" serial module
- or use "setserial /dev/ttyS0 uart none" to disable the serial module
before you load lirc_serial.

You should not do that, /dev/lirc0 or /dev/lirc/0 is the output of lirc,
not the input.

You should not have to do this, the device node should be created
automatically by the lirc modules.
