It's working now. I found problem myself. Nobody could help me,
because it was my laptop specific. I just found out that I didn't
remove my modem pcmcia card, which accidentally was detected on
same serial port as SIR. I removed the card, reload modules and
I still have one glitch though. After hibernate/resume on laptop
I need to unload/reload lirc* modules and for some reason
different device will be created each time - /dev/lirc first, than
/dev/lirc/0 next reload and then it back to /dev/lirc next
reload and so on.
Anyone have an idea why would that happen ?
