See http://wilsonet.com/jarod/imon_stuff/imon-devinput-lirc/ for the
config I use w/my own imon hardware.

I've considered adding lirc_dev support back to the imon driver when
we get it merged, but it really doesn't make a whole lot of sense,
given that the imon devices do all IR decoding in hardware. As long as
the keymap is complete, there's no benefit to wiring up lirc_dev vs.
just using lircd's devinput access method for imon devices.
