I got rid of this lag by disabling the asynchronously running repeat
timer in the kernel:
The file ir-common.c has been renamed to ir-functions.c, but this
still applies cleanly to the 126.96.36.199 kernel.
I'm using the linuxinput driver of DirectFB via softdevice. The remote
plugin adds a layer of abstraction. If I remember correctly, it reduced
the repeat rate, but there wasn't any noticeable lag. That is, I could
open up a long menu, such as the EPG, and navigate to the desired line
by pressing and holding the Down button. Without my kernel patch, the
cursor would end up a few lines before or after the desired spot.
