It seems to be just nomenclacure ;) what I called "IR core" you called "lirc core" what I called "lirc core" you called "lirc_dev" What I called IR core is the one that will be used by every IR driver, handling sysfs, evdev's, calling decoders, etc. I opted to use the nomenclature Lirc to the part of the IR subsystem that will create the Lirc interface. Currently, I almost finished the evdev part of the "IR core", using the current API to control the dynamic keycode allocation. It is already working fine with V4L drivers.
