Summary 
Add kernel remote control support through evdev.
Proposer 
Benjamin Zores

Description

Many STB multimedia embedded devices feature a remote control support. Based on LIRC, it's always a pain to get the right driver to work with the right receiver and it's hard to configure and support multiple remotes on a given system.

Mainline kernel never get LIRC included but a few remotes currently are supported, providing a regular evdev interface, acting like a regular keyboard/mouse controller.

The idea would be to create some framework for generic remote handling, with migration from currently LIRC-supported remotes to new API.

Some work/patches already have been worked out... See
