With a bit of fiddling and a reboot and both mouse and keyboard codes 
are nicely received by inputlirc.  For me, the benefit of in-kernel 
drivers and inputlirc is that there is again fewer non-packetized 
components in the system, so updates are again easier.

For some reason, there were a couple of non-functioning buttons with 
lirc, and now with rc-keymaps and inputlirc some non-functioning again, 
but they are different keys.  I wonder if there is a mailing list for 
these things; I could report the keys there.
