I have now tested this issue on my laptop with these irda-modules:
irtty_sir, sir_dev, irda, crc_ccitt

I tried to load the ircomm module but nothing happened in /dev. I found
out if I load ircomm_tty also (depends on ircomm, so you can just use
modprobe ircomm_tty) the device nodes in /dev will be created.

Hope this helps.
