[RESOLVED] lircd with serial ir-einschalter does not work

I am having trouble to get the following setup working:
Fujitsu D3222-B (external serial port -  BIOS: Super IO Chip: SCH5636 -> Serial Port: Enabled; Device Settings: IO=3F8h; IRQ=4;)
ir-einschalter (IR module with power on function ) connected to that external serial port by using provided serial cable
XBOX360 Remote (learned with that ir-einschalter) is an RC6 and rc6-mce-lircd key definition should work
VDR (DVB Software) user and group vdr:vdr

lircd installed and configured (best I know) but I am not able to use “irw” for example, just mode2 is giving me some details.

So I have two problems:
1) [modinit] isn’t executed after starting lircd.services
Here is how lirc_options.conf looks like, but after lircd.service start the [modinit] part would not be executed (I don’t see with 'lsmod | grep lirc' or 'dmesg | grep lirc' nothing new, like below when manually start) . I checked the lircd.services and there is an part with “Wants=lircd-setup.service” but I can’t find this service here on clean archlinux installation. Manually executing the ‘/usr/bin/lircd-setup’ command will execute the [modinit] part from lirc_optins.conf. However this does not fix the problem.
# systemctl status lircd-setup.services
Unit lircd-setup.service could not be found.

# cat /etc/lirc/lirc_options.conf
[lircd]

code1 = /usr/bin/setfacl -m g:vdr:rw /dev/lirc0

1)    The ‘irw’ does not work even after manually executing [modinit] part and starting lircd without systemd (or with system services).

Re: [RESOLVED] lircd with serial ir-einschalter does not work

Does anyone use lircd with serial devices? I would need some help, but i am not sure what else to do.

Re: [RESOLVED] lircd with serial ir-einschalter does not work

Both issue solved! Here how I fix them.
1) there is missing lircd-setup.service
solved in upstream:

https://sourceforge.net/p/lirc/tickets/243/
https://sourceforge.net/p/lirc/git/ci/e0eecc014e07261249d08e6c6145a5807e41dbda/tree/systemd/lircd-setup.service

current fix before new upstream release is done

curl -O https://sourceforge.net/p/lirc/git/ci/e0eecc014e07261249d08e6c6145a5807e41dbda/tree/systemd/lircd-setup.service?format=raw
mv lircd-setup.service\?format\=raw  /usr/lib/systemd/system/lircd-setup.service

Reload systemd, scanning for new or changed units:
# systemctl daemon-reload

# systemctl status lircd-setup.service
● lircd-setup.service - LIRC Infrared Signal Decoder - setup as root
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/lircd-setup.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: inactive (dead)
#
# systemctl enable lircd-setup.service

2) used wrong code, after learning my own ‘irw’ was working fine

irrecord --disable-namespace -d /dev/lirc0 /etc/lirc/lircd.conf.d/XBOX360RemoteWhite.lircd.conf

whole file:
