Hi, I was not aware this was a known problem but I'm pretty sure this
patch should solve it. That problem happens because the toggle bit
control (on the unpatched code) is done in the keymap check cycle so
unknown repeated keys are not ignored and since the keypress data is
still saved into the device the error message is printed every 150ms
untill key data changes.
I didn't find the wiki page but I think this is the correct solution
since it resets ir data after each poll.
Please let me know if it works good if you are going to test the patch.
