Compile tested only.

I guess after that change, there will be no more /dev/lircN device, right? Neither will LIRC_XXX IOCTL codes be supported?

That looks to me as a completely new driver, not a port to new API.

Right now there are applications using the current behaviour (pierogi for example), which will be broken by the change.
