Well, I've got a first blush "it compiles" test run done.  There are
still some packaging changes to be done to make even the regular binary
packages (not the kernel source stuff) work out of the box, but I'm
basically there.  So, time for some questions.

The patches in debian/patches:
Why are we hardcoding kernel versions?
Why are we reproducing entire kernel functions (both .c and .h files)?

Can we do better?  I would like to get to the point where we can just
say #include foo/bar.h - I realize that may be some time off, but we can
do better than we are now.

Also, does anyone already have a decent working relationship with
lirc upstream?  I'd like to push at least the manpage patch upstream
(hopefully more, over time), but it would be nice if it came from someone
who already had a working relationship with them.  I have reworked it
to apply to the new upstream and will commit it shortly, but before I
go and make a fool of myself barging in, I thought I'd ask if anyone
already has a decent working relationship with them.

Thanks all,
