Comment 6 for bug 1004239

weel, the last fail was due to the new device /dev/lircd, while lircd still assume it to be /dev/lirc (?)

After adding 'REMOTE_DEVICE="/dev/lircd"' to hardware.conf, at least I got the restart right:

~$ sudo /etc/init.d/lirc restart
 * Stopping remote control daemon(s): LIRC [ OK ]
 * Loading LIRC modules [ OK ]
 * Starting remote control daemon(s) : LIRC [ OK ]
