New Kernel: 2.6.36
That was my first thought, and I did check all my settings in menuconfig to see if something was amiss, didn't find anything. I did the diff as you suggested, found that in the old kernel, IR-Core was compiled into the kernel, new kernel was set up as module. Changed new config, recompile & reboot, same problem.
Just for giggles, I did an lsmod for each kernel and dumped the outputs into text files. Module list order is slightly different, but there is one glaring difference:
Module Size Used by
old kernel: cx88_dvb 20798 15
new kernel: cx88_dvb 20782 0
The differences in the "used by" section is disturbing!
The problems started with the 2.6.35 kernel.
