hmm, I think I know the reason. Actually this is due to hardware bug. I
think I have older silicon revision that returns error code when polling
remote events and there is no event. You have a newer silicon that does
not return error any more. Current remote polling code in the driver
relies that error code. I will fix that soon, it is easy to fix.
