Ah so exactly the same as for my remote. Interesting...

If you change these values (to anything but zero) before
input_register_device, the input driver will just disable auto-repeat
(or rather, you'd need to handle it yourself in the driver with the
appropriate timer func, and I didn't feel like duplicating half the code
of the input driver). input_register_device also says all capabilities
must be set up before calling it, when I tried to change those values
afterwards it didn't seem to work (though maybe I made some testing
error, I can't see why it shouldn't work). I guess a REP_DELAY a bit
over the initial delay (like 300ms) should work, and a REP_PERIOD of
about 100 (which would give you about 50% chance of stopping pressing
keys exactly) might be reasonable - though it really is annoying if you
can't stop exactly (but it's not solvable - either live with slow repeat
or live with that).
