Hello Pali,

I really like your proposal although I would like to get my patchset
first :-) :-)

Suppose you came up with a patchset for your ideas-- would that include
changes to existing RC drivers to use the proposed framework? If so,
I am wary that it would
break at least a few of them. Or would you just present the framework
and allow the
RC drivers' authors to opt-in, one by one?

At any rate, if you want someone to test some of your ideas I can work
with you.

Regards,
Jim Quinlan
