Yes, entirely user space as far as LIRC is concerned. usb_uirt_raw is
the LIRC "driver". It functions as a blinkenlight with, but
that is it. I have a couple of em. I can drop one in the @-mail for
ya if you like, just drop me a note off-list with your address. It is
one of the few IR blasters that does 56kKHz, or I would have abandoned
it long ago.
