I've got the CX23888 integrated IR Rx done and Tx nearly done.  I was
waiting to see how kfifo and lirc_dev panned out before making the
interface to userspace.

The CX23885, CX23418, and CX2584x integrated IR is essentially the same.
I hope to have CX23885 IR done by Christmas.

Both of those IR devices are/will be encapsulated in a v4l2_subdevice
object internally.  I was going to write lirc_v4l glue between the
v4l2_device/v4l2_subdev_ir_ops and lirc_dev.

As for the the I2C chips, I was going to go back and encapsulate those
in the v4l2_subdevice object as well, so then my notional lirc_v4l could
pick those up too.  The I2C subsystem only allows one binding to an I2C
client address/name on a bus.  So without some new glue like a notional
lirc_v4l, it *may* be hard to share between ir-kbd-i2c and lirc_i2c and
