Can you post your kernel patch with the fixes.
I'm probably using the one by Dwaine Garden "80th attempt...." post.
I would like any improvement in button response.

Thank you.

    Yeah I have a modified patch that seems more responsive that
detects button presses
through gpio.  also the patch I found on the list (80th attempt....)
has some duplicate entries
in the key map that i think is causing some of the
problems(specifically presses being miss
detected as  other buttons.  so far (since last night) it seems
better. Though I'd like to use
lirc directly so any remote would work.  the lirc_i2c driver is very
similar to the saa7134's i2c
input driver, code wise , but I just get 1 byte codes like its hard
coded for there remote.
If the patch stays stable I'll post it.
