I didn't think they should be incompatible, which is why I thought nothing of it when I pushed 0.8.5 into Fedora 10 at the time, but:
At a glance, in all cases, the users had a 64-bit kernel, but lirc 0.8.4a + the drivers in the F10 2.6.27 kernels work just fine together, while lirc 0.8.5 userspace broke things.
