Yes, I'm quite well aware of that.

The new imon driver doesn't support the original imon hardware, its
still handled by lirc_imon, which now *only* supports the older
hardware, and behaves exactly the same as it always has. If the new
imon driver is driving his hardware, he's got an onboard decode
device, which was obvious in my mind when writing that comment, but
might not have been for those not inside my head. :)
