Would using liblirc_client instead of the current "homebrew" implementation
help out with this?
Also, somewhat off topic: when running powertop on my VDR box, I see lircd
waking up the CPU from idle about 1000 times a second while VDR is connected
Top causes for wakeups:
54.3% (988.1) lircd : schedule_timeout (process_timeout)
28.5% (518.4) vdr : futex_wait (hrtimer_wakeup)
I already tried adding some cCondWait::SleepMs's to VDR's lirc action loop but
it didn't seem to have any effect. Any ideas whether this is something that
VDR could do anything about, or if it's a LIRC internal thing?
