I can see the appeal in this, but now you've disabled automatic decoding 
for the protocol specified by the keymap for raw drivers? So this would 
also be a change, right?

I agree with Mauro that the "proper" long-term fix would be to teach the 
LIRC userspace daemon to enable the lirc protocol as/when necessary, but 
something similar to the patch below (but lirc + keymap protocol...if 
that's possible to implement in a non-intrusive manner, I haven't 
checked TBH) might be a good idea as an interim measure?
