You were exactly right, looks like all of the modules are now in the tree, and lirc just provides the user-space daemon and applications. Also, my key codes have changes and such, as the remote is now handled with the event driver rather than and i2c driver from the user-space perspective. If anyone needs help getting the remote to work with a newer kernel let me know, as I've gotten it sorted out. (At least for 126.96.36.199 and lirc 0.9.0 on gentoo)

LIRC doesn't depend on the V4L ioctl-based API. It expects instead to
install a kernel driver which ties into the I2C bus API exported by the
bridge driver (e.g. pvrusb2).
However that I2C API has undergone some changes of late. There have
been some recent changes to the pvrusb2 driver within the kernel needed
to stay in sync with these changes. I'd be willing to bet that this is
what has caused the problem. This unfortunately creates issues for
out-of-tree drivers when the kernel APIs they are using becomes a moving
Try looking for a later version of LIRC. Odds are that a later release
of the package already tracks this - or there very soon will be a
release that will catch up.
