Thanks a lot for the patch, I've asked the people with ite-cir
receivers to test it.

In the meanwhile I ran some tests with gpio-ir-recv and timeout
set to 200ms with a rc-5 remote (that's as close to the original
setup as I can test right now).

While the patch fixes the additional key down/up event on longer
presses, I still get a repeated key event on a short button
press - which makes it hard to do a single click with the
remote.

Test on kernel 4.14 with your patch:
1510927844.292126: event type EV_MSC(0x04): scancode = 0x1015
1510927844.292126: event type EV_KEY(0x01) key_down: KEY_ENTER(0x001c)
1510927844.292126: event type EV_SYN(0x00).
1510927844.498773: event type EV_MSC(0x04): scancode = 0x1015
1510927844.498773: event type EV_SYN(0x00).
1510927844.795410: event type EV_KEY(0x01) key_down: KEY_ENTER(0x001c)
1510927844.795410: event type EV_SYN(0x00).
1510927844.875412: event type EV_KEY(0x01) key_up: KEY_ENTER(0x001c)
1510927844.875412: event type EV_SYN(0x00).

Same signal received on kernel 4.9:
1510927844.280350: event type EV_MSC(0x04): scancode = 0x1015
1510927844.280350: event type EV_KEY(0x01) key_down: KEY_OK(0x0160)
1510927844.280350: event type EV_SYN(0x00).
1510927844.506477: event type EV_MSC(0x04): scancode = 0x1015
1510927844.506477: event type EV_SYN(0x00).
1510927844.763111: event type EV_KEY(0x01) key_up: KEY_OK(0x0160)
1510927844.763111: event type EV_SYN(0x00).

If I understand it correctly it's the input layer repeat (500ms delay)
kicking in, because time between initial scancode and timeout is
now signal time + 200ms + 164ms + 200ms (about 570-580ms).
On older kernels this was signal time + 200ms + 250ms, so typically
just below the 500ms default repeat delay.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around the timeout code in the
rc layer. One problem seems to be that we apply the rather large
timeout twice. Maybe detecting scancodes generated via timeout
(sth like timestamp - last_timestamp > protocol_repeat_period)
and in that case immediately signalling keyup could help? Could well
be that I'm missing somehting important and this is a bad idea.
I guess I'd better let you figure something out :)

so long,

Hias
