That's a valid point, I guess. The only downside is special case handling
outside the input layer, which would be much simpler in the input layer.

So first of all, the sii8620 uses the CEC protocol as well (see commit
e25f1f7c94e1 drm/bridge/sii8620: add remote control support), so this
will have to go into rc-core, not cec-adap.c. There was a discussion about
some time ago.

The current implementation has an ugly key up event which would be nice
to do without.

The REP_DELAY must be equal to REP_PERIOD seems a bit odd to me. In fact,
I propose something different. If REP_DELAY != 0 then the input layer
produces autorepeats as normal. If REP_DELAY == 0, then generate repeats
on the second key down event.

See patch below.

Thanks,
Sean

Subject: [PATCH] media: cec: move cec autorepeat handling to rc-core

CEC autorepeat is different than other protocols. Autorepeat is triggered
by the first repeated user control pressed CEC message, rather than a
fixed REP_DELAY.

This change also does away with the KEY_UP event directly after the first
KEY_DOWN event, which was used to stop autorepeat from starting.

See commit a9a249a2c997 ("media: cec: fix remote control passthrough")
for the original change.

Ah yes, that's true. But it still is specific to the CEC protocol, the code
handling that would just move to rc-core from cec-adap.c

That looks nice! I'm fine with that.

Not allowed by whom? If I, as a user, want my remote to start
autorepeating after 400 msec instead of 550, will the police come and
fine me? Please do not confuse the default behavior with allowed one.
The only restriction is that if you have not seen messages for longer
than 550 msecs you should "release" the key.

Right, and they do not have to match autorepeat timings, just control
whether we should continue repeating or generate release event.

You could do that by catching EV_REP events in your driver, but I do not
see why you want to remove this flexibility from users. Again, if I want
to wait for autorepeat to start for 10 seconds, or 10 msecs, it is my
choice. You are to provide the default, I am to override it if I want.

I have no idea why you simply not rely on current input core autorepeat
handling, set REP_DELAY to be 550 msec and call it a day.

Thanks.
