-get/set rc keycode/scancode tables, set protocol decoder, test events

+ir\-keytable is a tool that lists Remote Controller devices, loads
+rc keymaps, tests events, and adjusts other Remote Controller options.
+Rather than loading a rc keymap, it is also possible to set protocol decoders
+and set rc scancode to keycode mappings directly.
Note: You need to have read permissions on /dev/input for most of the
options to work.
