In 2.6.21, smsc-ircc2 at least found the device. So we definitely have
a problem because in 2.6.22-rc, we don't find the device.

What laptop do you have? Maybe I can find one to play with.

I think Windows always calls _SRS, even if it doesn't need to change
the current resource settings. Linux doesn't do that, and my HP nw8240
firmware has a bug that leaves the IR device partly-enabled until _SRS
is called. Maybe yours has a similar bug.

Can you set CONFIG_ACPI_DEBUG=y, make it so smsc-ircc2 isn't loaded
automatically, and try this (along with my previous patch to swap
FIR and SIR):

# dmesg -n 8
# echo 0x200 > /sys/module/acpi/parameters/debug_level
# echo disable > /sys/bus/pnp/devices/00:0a/resources
# echo activate > /sys/bus/pnp/devices/00:0a/resources
# modprobe smsc-ircc2

If you try this, can you collect the whole dmesg log?

It's also possible that some other driver like i2c is messing with
the ISA/LPC bridge configuration and breaking the IR device config.
Your lspnp output doesn't show any other ISA devices down there,
but I know i2c likes to poke around and discover things that kinda,
sorta work, but the BIOS didn't expose.
