Yes, I can understand this, each IR protocols have their own timeout, this is reasonable.

May be a typo, "cpuidle is only DISABLED while IR frames are being receive,", this is not I want to implement, experiments have also shown poor results.

Yes, this is what I want, cpuidle is totally disabled while pressing buttons, disable cpuidle at the first frame then keep disabled until there is no activity for a while.
So that we only can not decode the first frame, such as, if transmitting 4 frames once, we can correctly decode 3 times.

I also try your suggestion, set autosuspend delay time to protocol's timeout value, but the result is terrible. If transmitting 4 frames once, we can't correctly decode 3 times,
even can't decode it sometime. The sequence is, cpu in idle state when the first frame coming, then disable cpu idle until protocols' timeout, cpu in idle state again, the first frame can't be decoded.
The second frame coming, it will repeat the behavior of the first frame, may cause the second frame can't be decode......

Can you take account of I have done in the first version, autosuspend delay time is set to 125ms?
