Using kernel 126.96.36.199
I've been trying to get the main kernel source to
compile nsc-ircc but I can't find an option to build it.
Has this module been removed from the build process?
The source files are still located in drivers/net/irda/
Building this driver outside the kernel tree produces
the following warnings:

Has support for the NSC chips changed in the kernel? Has this
module been replaced?

Works for me.
Probably you forgot to enable CONFIG_ISA to make the NSC choice appear?

You're correct. That was my problem.
I should have looked in the Kconfig file
before post. Thanks.
Now I'm able to load the driver but I'm
confused over 'irda0'. Am I suppose
to mknod this in /dev before running

Nope, it's a network device like eth0 - there are no special dev-files
for these guys. IMHO the most straitforward approach would be - after
loading the module of course - to simply "ifconfig irda0 up" probably
followed by setting /proc/sys/net/irda/discovery to 1, if you want active
Traditionally the same result is achieved by "irattach irda0 -s" which
will also try to load the driver module beforehand. But only if some alias
for irda0 pointing to the driver name was given in /etc/modprobe.conf.
Personally I prefer the generic approach above - YMMV.
