    The X11 limitations are unfortunate but they can be worked around with
    keymap support in the kernel driver. ati_remote2 keymap patch is somewhere
    on it's way upstream as we speak. Not sure about ati_remote though.

    Furthermore if lirc can already handle input from event devices then the
    lirc_atiusb drivers are simply not needed.
