The separate select() in lirc.c is useless anyway. You can only sleep in
one select() at once, so all FDs must be registered for the _same_
select(), the one in input.c. I think the changes in this patch do not
lose anything useful from current code. The correct "sleep until input
or next frame" behavior would require making the code read until all
input is exhausted when called, and do that once whenever the FD becomes
readable. But that is probably better done in git.
