Similar patches have been sent before and were rejected:
http://linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2005-April/001571.html

It would be better to use Gerd Knorr's ir-common (for av7110, too),
so keymaps could be manipulated using the standard EVIOCSKEYCODE
ioctl, e.g. by using input-kbd from Gerd Knorr's input-utils
package.

I hope you agree.

Johannes
