I passed to a period of time were I couldn't dedicate to it. Let's see if I
would have more time those days.

Any help is welcome.

Analog:

There's a serious bug at URB decoding routines, causing kernel Panic, caused by
one of my trials to avoid loosing parts of the URB's. I didn't have time yet to
track where the problem is.

IR: There's no IR code yet. This chip doesn't support the standard way to probe
devices at I2C bus. The better would be to convert it to the new i2c way, where
the driver knows what devices are at what addresses. With this change, it
shouldn't be hard to implement IR support.

Cheers,
Mauro
