I sent to Alan Cox the "light" patch, but the "main" patch atm I think
it's best to remain the "full" one, for tests.

I'm not the author of the drivers, I only took them from the lirc cvs,
and make them compile under 2.5/6 series kernel.
AFAICS it should work also in-kernel, but I can't try because I can't
set bttv in-kernel, my card isn't autodetected. (Also, bttv author
suggest to don't compile bttv in-kernel, so depending on bttv, this
driver should be compiled as a module too).

This is a port of the drivers from lirc project (,
I'm not going to rewrite it, also because the support for lirc in user
software is present in many programs, like xine, xawdecode, xmms (with
plugin) and so on.
The lirc_client library is simple and flexible, and the project is
consolidated, i don't see the need to change it, also because can be a
problem for backport in the 2.4 kernels.
