[UVFe] lirc-modules-source doesn't compile with kernel 2.6.20

Bug Description

Binary package hint: lirc-modules-source

See debian bug #400494. Could you please apply the patch from that bug? So I don't have to do touch /usr/src/linux/include/linux/config.h any more.

Problem here as well.

The link in the first post is dead for me, so here's a link to a message on the <a href="http://<email address hidden>/msg09210.html">Arch Linux mailing list</a> which also mentions the problem which is that linux/config.h is no longer used in kernels >= 2.6.19 and linux/autoconf.h is used instead.

Would an upgrade to 0.8.1 of the lirc-modules fix this?

With Mario's help, I've got a build of 0.8.1+cvs20070310 built and compiling the modules. I'm going to turn this bug report into a UVFE. :)

This package builds and so does the lirc-modules-source package, tested by building all drivers (except parallel which isn't SMP safe).

The build system is virtually unchanged. It had to be tweaked for the newer automake. The changes for 2.6.20 have been included as a deb patch.

The serial driver has been tested, but seeing as how no drivers at all work currently, this package can only be an improvement. :)
