Couple of questions - what is missing in the current input core to
properly support IR devices? How can we enhance it to not need new
subsystem to handle such devices? We already have in-kernel support for
some of the devices you are adding (ATI remotes, xbox, etc) so the
situation is not ideal. Could we try to work it in ininput core and
maybe provide LIRC device access through an input handler
implementation so that applications do not have to implement 2 types of
interfaces?
