There's a lot of indirection in drivers under drivers/media/video so it
doesn't surprise me when someone misses something.

(BTW, I only checked cx23885 since I wrote the IR handling and added the
work queue usage for IR that driver.)

Too big of a regression testing job for me to take on at the moment.

That will do for now.

I have gotten reports of the IR Rx FIFO overflows for the CX23885 IR Rx
unit (the I2C connected one).  I eventually should either set the Rx
FIFO service interrupt watermark down from 4 measurments to 1
measurment, or use a kthread_worker with some higher priority to respond
to the IR Rx FIFO service interrupt.

Yes, your patch below looks sane to me.
