This here is a second go at submitting linux infrared remote control
(lirc) drivers for kernel inclusion, with a much smaller patch set
includes only the core lirc driver and two device drivers, all three
which have been heavily updated since the last submission, based on
feedback received.

Hm. Submitting this while the vast majority of people who might review
it were at the Japan Linux Symposium seems like it might have been a
bad idea. Or does no feedback mean its all good and ready to be
merged? ;)

Silence is concurrence. :)

Actually I will note, that lirc_dev.h uses kfifo:;f=drivers/input/lirc/lirc_dev.h;hb=f47f5e852d08f174c303d0ed53649733190014f7

but it least it appear to be nicely wrappered in that file. Moving to a
new kfifo implementation should be fairly easy, if the kfifo change
makes it in first.

Yeah, been keeping an eye on your own kfifo usage discussion w/lirc's usage in mind... Thank you for blazing that trail. ;)
