Here the macro is actually a variable definition and so it makes sense
to group it with the other definitions without blank lines. I checked
other rc drivers and many of them have a similar pattern. Could we
consider the warning as a false positive?

I'll reorder the patches and add the maintainer entry.

Ok.

I've seen that other drivers as gpio-ir-recv and sunxi-cir assign
those numbers to the fields of input_id but I couldn't find a
documentation of the meaning. If the assignments are not needed I will
drop them in the next version.
