I misspelt 'sourceforge' on first attempt - shame on me,
not SF :)

Uhm - not sure I understand. I thought both ircomm and irport
were needed, at least it looks like so from this 2.4.21-pre3
output from my live GPRS link:

[root@dolphin root]# lsmod
Module Size Used by Not tainted
ircomm-tty 22528 1 (autoclean)
ppp_async 7744 1 (autoclean)
ppp_generic 16060 3 (autoclean) [ppp_async]
slhc 5200 0 (autoclean) [ppp_generic]
smc-ircc 7520 1 (autoclean)
irport 5256 1 (autoclean) [smc-ircc]
ircomm 8712 0 [ircomm-tty]
irda 94192 1 [ircomm-tty smc-ircc irport ircomm]

that is, pppd speaks on /dev/ircomm0 - but smc-ircc seems to
use irport.

I would gladly oblige :) but how do I know what the proper IRQ
is ? findchip does tell me that on this CPx750J, but it doesn't
tell me anything on the C640...

Thanks, will get back with more news soon-ish.
