Each rc-raw device has a property "allowed_protos" stored in structure
ir_raw_event_ctrl. But it didn't work because all decoders would be
called when decoding. This path makes only allowed protocol decoders
been invoked.

Each IR protocol decoder already checks whether it is enabled or not; 
should it not be so that only allowed protocols can be enabled rather 
than checking both enabled_protocols and allowed_protocols?

Just from reading store_protocols it looks like decoders which aren't
in allowed_protocols can be enabled, which makes no sense. Also 
ir_raw_event_register all protocols are enabled rather than the 
allowed ones.

Lastely I don't know why raw ir drivers should dictate which protocols
can be enabled. Would it not be better to remove it entirely?

I agree with you. I just thought that the only thing a decoder should care
is its decoding logic, but not including decoder management. My idaea is:
     1) use enabled_protocols to select decoders in ir_raw.c, but not
placed in decoders to do the judgement.
     2) remove  allowed_protocols or just use it to set the default
decoder (also should rename allowed_protocols  to default_protocol).

I also have a question:
     Is there a requirement that one more decoders are enabled for a
IR device at the same time?
    And if that will lead to a issue that each decoder may decode a
same pulse sequence to different evnets since their protocol is
different?

The default decoder should be the one set by the rc keymap.

Yes, you want to be able to multiple remotes on the IR device (which
you can do as long as the scancodes don't overlap, I think), and the 
lirc device is implemented as a decoder, so you might want to see the
raw IR as well as have it decoded.

At the moment, no. David Hardeman has sent a patch for this:

Sean , many thanks for your help. I know much more about IR framwork
now. I'll try to
work out a patch to remove "allowed_protocols".

Thanks again!
