Proposal for reporting remote control button presses to userland
Ok, I think I have a plan. Is this cool with everybody?
I'd like to add a wsremote(4) device that uses its own wsmux. Add new
WSCONS_EVENT_REMOTE_UP/DOWN event type definitions, and feed struct
wscons_events for button presses/releases.
We'll deliver raw keycodes to userland, and a 'wsremoted' service that
can run which loads a buttonmap (it's going to be different for each
remote, lets use /usr/pkg/share/wsremote/ati_tv_wonder_600.plist as an
example) and can translate raw button codes to cooked ones on a socket,
lets say /var/run/wsremoted.sock. Message format can be something like:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
An application can then listen on that socket for button presses and do
whatever it feels like (application might be MythTV, lirc, mplayer, etc).
