please find attached a patch against a clean 2.4.18 for the ACTiSYS
(aka Sharp CE-IR5). This is not my code; it was written by Shimizu
I found this driver in the mailing list archive. I'm using this driver
it's working very well.
Could you please add this to your patches for the official kernel
If you need the patches for irda-utils, please let me know.
