So... There's a fair amount of additional ir-core stuff I'd suggest
bringing in at some point. I've already pointed Mario at this, and been
discussing them with him and other mythbuntu devs on irc.

I believe the above four already committed commits map to:


I've since tacked on a few more patches in the Fedora 14 kernels:


Most of these are in the linuxtv media_tree/staging/v2.6.37 branch, but a
few are still pending merge by Mauro. I've included commit IDs and log
messages for the relevant commits in the patches themselves.

Highlights of these updates include:
- proper auto-config of another imon 0xffdc device
- imon key release fixups (was possible for keys to get stuck down)
- lirc_ene0100 replaced with ene_ir (ported to ir-core)
- new nuvoton (ASRock ION 330HT) ir driver
- lirc compat ioctl fixups so 64-bit kernel, 32-bit userspace works

Please consider merging these patches as well.

Thanks much,
