Ok, after alot of investigation I've found where the problem
I spoke about in October this year originates...
found SMC SuperIO Chip (devid=0x0e rev=01 base=0x002e): LPC47N252
SMsC IrDA Controller found
IrCC version 2.0, firport 0x158, sirport 0x2f8 dma=1, irq=3
smsc_ircc_setup_io(), can't get iobase of 0x2f8
all i did above is build smsc-ircc2, modprobe irda, and
insmod smsc-ircc2. (enabling that line of debugging info)
it sems to detect the chip, but fails on that call.
could it be conflicting with the serial driver? any suggestions
would be very very appreciated. Today i bought myself a USB->IRDA
device (about $70USD) and found it was based on the sigmatel chipset
which isn't supported :(
