All the types which are kernel modules are included. The usermode drivers
are all included except for irman which needs a library (I don't have
an irman so I'm not packaging this library).

Ports are configurable in all modules using module parameters.
Device files and driver type for lircd and irrecord are configurable using
command-line parameters.

I just included the source for the individual modules as part of the
package (with Makefiles "modified" to work without needing autoconf etc.)
-- I was thinking of creating an lirc-modules-source package,
and possibly also lirc-modules-2.2.14 etc. packages, but I haven't done
this yet.
