I had the same problem after upgrading to 2.6.10.
Searching around for a while, I found that pci_register_driver does not probe
any of the devices listed in the pci_device_id struct. Looking for a cause, I
found out that the parport-pc module had allready registered with that device
(in my case, the VIA 8231 southbridge, which also contains the FIR hardware,
as far as my understanding goes...). After unloading parport-pc, via-ircc
correctly registered the irda0 device.
Could there be some change in kernel pci driver probing behaviour that leads
to this problem?
