No offense, but I like my patch much better :-) [1]. I fail to see why
polling has to be done - just for half-working (at best on some cards,
not at all if the native repeat rate is too low) "improved" auto-repeat.

I was under the impression that using cancel_rearming_delayed_work
instead of cancel_delayed_work (as I did in my patch) would make it
unnecessary to call flush_scheduled_work (but I just followed some other
drivers and could be easily wrong).

As for the IR codes being in common ir code, I didn't care but the
dvb-usb driver also uses its own tables - though I see this driver
probably has reasons to do so.
