First off, I'm so sorry for the confusion!

Yes, he provided me a datasheet. After confirming the engineer,
the device seems to be the combination of ITE 8512E superIO chip and
a specific firmware running on the ITE 8512E's embedded controller.

Thanks. In my case, I guess lirc_ite8709 is a good one? Thanks.
