Woo-hoo! One Vista-compatible (oh how it's called) remote control was
waiting for this!

All version.h and autoconf.h inclusions aren't needed.

#ifdef MODULE is gross and very old. Don't need that. Just use

static int __init x_init(void)

static void __exit x_exit(void)

It will work correctly in modular and built-in case.

Static number of devices is simple but how about adding them dynamically.
