* Due to the 2.6 kernel build system, external module compilation
* with a normal setup requires write access to //usr/src/linux
* There are several ways to fix/prevent this.
* Users can willingly let portage make this writable by doing
* # config-kernel --allow-writable yes
* However, this is considered a security risk!
* The prefered method is to enable Gentoo's new 'koutput' method
* for kernel modules. See the doc
* To enable this, you'll need to run
* # config-kernel --output-dir /var/tmp/kernel-output
* and then install a new kernel

I think it should say enable i2c and the various other modules needed since config-kernel seems to be deprecated and recommended against.

Steps to Reproduce:
what about lirc-0.7.0-r1?
Well, now that 0.7.0-r1 is marked stable, everything works fine. Thanks.
