Hello Michael,

While I am indeed strongly in favor of integrating dib0700 with
ir_keymaps.c so it is consistent with the other drivers, I have been
tied up in another project and haven't had any cycles to do the work
required.

By all means, if you want to propose a patch, I would be happy to
offer feedback/comments.

Thanks,

Devin
