event decoding changed 4.4.7 -> 4.6.4 breaking user space apps

Alec Leamas
Hi!

As heading says: In the 4.4.7.. 4.6.4  span the event decoding changed
breaking user space apps such as lirc. The problem is that the
autorepeat keypress events which existed in 4.4.7 are missing in 4.6.4.

Bisecting brought me to 078600f51 [media] rc-core: allow calling rc_open
with device not initialized.

There are some  more details and logs in [1] Besides this, I'm lost; I
have  no understanding of the actual code.

Now, what next?


Cheers!

Hm... while trying to make a userspace walk-around patch I stumble into
[2]. Seems that this has been reported and fixed already. Sorry for the
noise.
