Bad idea to have two drivers for the same piece of hardware. And this
gets straight back into the why should lirc be different from the input
layer point raised earlies. I think we really shouldn't keep lirc as
a separate subsystem, but make sure all the drivers are written to the
input layer. To make the migration easier for exiting users we could
add a /dev/lirc driver ontop of the input layer, similar to how the ps2
mouse and joystick drivers sit ontop of the input core.
