Add support for Remote Controllers and adds a mapping that works for all currently defined remote controllers
Description of problem:
Currently, X discards all keycodes upper than 247. As most Remote Controller keycodes fit on this category, xorg-x11-drv-evdev silently discards those codes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This applies to all versions of X11/Xorg.
I'm working on some patches that will allow receiving those events on X applications.

Script used to generate the evdev keymap
This is the script I used to generate the key translations used on the previous patch. It has some code that will also help to create a xkb keymap for the device, but that part is still incomplete.

Patch against xf86-input-evdev-2.5.0.tar.bz2
It probably helps to analize the patch against the upstream evdev. As the patch
were written for Fedora 14, it applies to upstream version 2.5.0. Some small changes are needed for it to work with version 2.6.0.
This bug was filed against Fedora 14 which is now EOL. Please re-open this bug if you still experience this issue with one of the currently suppported versions of Fedora. Don't forget to update the version field if you do so.
