Agreed.

How should we handle control data
- RC5/RCMM selection
- inversion setting
if we drop /proc/av7110_ir?

Should we add module parameters or keep /proc/av7110_ir just for that?

RC5+ uses 5 bit addresses and 7 bit data.
If we put the address bits in the keymap we end up with a
2^12 * 2 = 8 KByte keymap for each device.

Unfortunetely, the input layer cannot handle sparse keymaps.
