I have an ACER TM 291 LCi which has an SMC FIR chip build in that I would
like to use.
However, when I try to configure my standard (www.kernel.org) 2.6.7 kernel,
I cannot find the SMC module option!
I have been looking all over the internet and nobody seems to have the same
Networking support -> IrDA subsystem support -> Infrared-port device drivers
FIR device drivers
 IrDA USB dongles
 Sigma Tel ...
 Toshiba Type ...
 VLSI 82C147 ...
(CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL=y is enabled in kernel options)
But no SMC FIR option!
If I add "CONFIG_SMC_IRCC_FIR=m " manually to .config, it only gets deleted upon compiling the
kernel. However, if I only do an "xconfig", there are no complaints, so the option itself
is obviously known - but does not show up in the menu, anyhow.
I am at a complete loss here.

tristate "SMSC IrCC (EXPERIMENTAL)"
depends on EXPERIMENTAL && IRDA && ISA
So you need to have enabled experimental drivers and ISA support for this=20
driver to be compilable.
Hope this helps,
Tagline, you're it!
