Thanks! :)

I forgot to mention: The 2.8.0 enabled kernel and drivers have a tag
like 2.4.20-19.23.rhxxx.at, while the non-enabled RH proper stuff has
the usual 2.4.20-19.x tag.

OK, thanks.
I will be on vacation this week, and lirc is quite a nasty beast to
package (all different builds have the same name), so I won't be
really looking into it until the end of August, I guess.

BTW the 2.8.0 patched drivers, do they compile against < 2.8.0? I
assumed not, so I have built in a 2.8.0 kernel detection in the rpm
specfiles, so the patches are only applied if the kernel has 2.8.0 i2c
embedded (currently the match checking is exact, so it needs to be
reworked for 2.8.1 or 2.9.0).
