due to this commit (ARM: OMAP2+: Disable code that currently does not
work with multiplaform)


lirc driver for Nokia N900 (ir-rx51) cannot be enabled via make
menuconfig. It is because Nokia N900 support cannot be compiled without
ARCH_MULTIPLATFORM, but Nokia N900 lirc driver (IR_RX51) cannot be
compiled when ARCH_MULTIPLATFORM is enabled.

Because ir-rx51 driver is just for Nokia N900 it is nonsense to have
such condition because nobody can use ir-rx51 driver... It is even not
possible to enable compilation for it...

Here is simple patch which enable compilation for Nokia N900 and fix
compile errors:

So Tony, you are author of that commit (a62a6e98c3) which broke ir-rx51
module for Nokia N900. Do you know how to fix this driver for upstream
kernel? It would be great to have driver working and not to have it in
this dead state...

Also platform data for this driver are only in legacy board code.
Support in DTS is missing, so driver (after fixing above problem) cannot
be used on DT booted kernel.
