my udev-fu is very weak, but the %n substitutes the kernel supplied
number. in which case you'll get lirc[0-9] depending on which event it
matches. If you only have one ir port that you care about, then you'd
probably always want it to be the *same* symlink regardless of which
event it gets assigned to:

KERNEL=="event[0-9]", ATTRS{name}=="cx88 IR *", SYMLINK+="lirc0"
