I stand corrected, just found another patch that converted the original patch from ACPI to PNP.

Just came across this kernel patch that's suppose to add this Winbond CIR WPCD376I support.

Also depends on this patch
http://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/32657/

Haven't tried to apply it against 2.6.30.5 yet.  And I haven't seen it in the .31 branch yet.  So not sure how well it works. I don't have a windows MCE remote anyway :/

Hi all,
I've been searching for lirc support for this CIR chip.  I found another thread about how Intel and Nuvoton are not releasing information for Linux support.  But on the tech details page for the chip it says that:
  • Glue functions to complement the South Bridge functionality identical to the PC8374L Glue
  • Pin and software compliance with the existing PC8374L features
  • (see more here http://www.nuvoton.com/hq/enu/ProductAndSales/ProductLines/ComputerIC/SuperIO/AdvancedSuperIOforDesktop/WPCD376I.htm)

    So I was wondering if PC8374L has been implemented in lirc?

    This chip is on the Intel DG45FC mini-itx mobo.  Is there any hope for support for this chipset in my lifetime?  hehehe  
    Is there anything I can do to help?  Any info I can provide?

    Thanks,
    Tony
