VLSystem MPlay Blast mini remote control stopped working with lirc after
upgrade to 9.10.
The receiver can be made to work if the device is first opened (and then closed) in minicom before the lirc daemon is started.
I found out it's because minicom sets the RTS signal. I'm adding a patch to hw_mplay.c which sets the RTS signal during initializing the serial port.
The receiver contains a ftdi serial to USB chip and the problem is
probably triggered by this bug in the ftdi_sio kernel driver in 2.6.31,
but I think it's no harm setting the RTS anyway during serial port
