Thanks for the hint.

So I guess that the LIRC driver should be extended to watch out for a
USB device with the prober vendor/device ID and unbind it before usage,

This wouldn't help users who use the current LIRC with a kernel that
has the HID ignore quirk enabled by default, though (i.e., it would be
a regression).
