It will indeed reduce the amount of ghost events so it brings us in the
I'd still like to get rid of the ghost repeats entirely, or at least
some way for users to do it if we don't do it by default.
Maybe we could replace the kernel softrepeat with native repeats (for
those protocols/drivers that have them), while making sure that repeat
events before REP_DELAY are ignored and repeat events less than
REP_PERIOD since the previous event are ignored, so the users can still
configure them as they like?
Or maybe just a module option that causes rc-core to use native repeat
events, for those of us that want accurate repeat events without ghosting?
