I've actually tried defining the device node creation. I saw it in a
Ubuntu forum. I'll try it again, though.
btw, lircd1 is not created by default. The following are default
device nodes that are created when lircd starts.
So, I think I'm fine here, since the only difference is the name. But,
tell me if I"m wrong.
