We have an IR module and it appears to work (at least when being tested through U-Boot). What we need is a proper driver. AFAIK there is nothing for the OMAP3 in the Kernel which directly supports the IrDA hardware of UART3. And there was some discussion a while ago on the gta04-owner list how IrDA could be implemented (isn't that easy for some reason I don't remember exactly).
