Johannes is right. Driver nk6100 was named before the phone Nokia 6100 was
issued and in the manuals Nokia described the series as 6100.

In other words, driver nk6100 supports only old phones. Nokia 6100 is a
new phone model.

Going into the deailes, Nokia 61X0 didn't have the real irda stack
implemented, and they didn't work with Linux IrDA stack. Therefore we
created the infrared driver that allowed to communicate linux with the
phone over the inrared. The only phones with this feature were 6110, 6130
and 6150 (and probably their nonGSM versions).

For all other phones you can use the regular irda to communicate. See
gnokii-IrDA-Linux and gnokii-ir-howto from Docs/ subdir for more defaules.

This is correct wrt driver nk6100 and NOT Nokia 6100 driver.

Hope this clears the issue.
