Thanks for the link Andy. You appear to be correct, which suggests that
winbond-cir is the "wrong" one. Curiously there is a comment in
winbond-cir.c which explicitly mentions which byte is which:

854 * With NEC extended, Address1 is the LSB of the Address and
855 * Address2 is the MSB, Command parsing remains unchanged.

but then it also says:

25 * To do:
26 * o Test NEC and RC5

I suppose its all a matter of convention, but I think they should at
least be consistent, so I'll go by the NEC datasheet and submit a patch
to winbond-cir instead.

Cheers
James
