Nice!

This stuff is usually done this way (functions, which just check arguments and do nothing):

static inline int irlap_raw_recv_frame(struct sk_buff *skb, struct net_device *dev)
{
	if (skb == NULL)
		return -EINVAL;

	if (dev->atalk_ptr == NULL)
		return -ENODEV;

	return 0;
}

static inline int irlap_raw_register_device(struct net_device * dev)
{
	if (dev == NULL)
		return -ENODEV;
	return 0;
}

statice inline int irlap_raw_unregister_device(struct net_device * dev)
{
	if (dev == NULL)
		return -ENODEV;
	return 0;
}

I would suggest a small helper function here, which compiles into a constant, 
if raw_mode is not compiled in.

like

#ifdef CONFIG_IRDA_RAW
static inline int irlap_raw_mod(struct irlap_cb *self)
{
	return self->raw_mode;
}
#else
static inline int irlap_raw_mod(struct irlap_cb *self)
{
	return 0;
}
#endif


Best Regards
