Use checkpatch for your patch, not for the file.

Unfortunately, when there are function parameters are all upercase, checkpatch.pl
doesn't work well. Once I complained, it was said this is a feature, in order
to avoid some false-positives.

Then, you need to make allowed_protocols equal to protocol, for the userspace
tools to work properly with it.

If you choose to keep it, please don't call it as "raw_ir". Raw IR's are the
ones that sends a sequence of pulse-space events to the Kernel, for them to
be handled by a software decoder. What you're adding is, instead, a hardware
decoded IR device.
