-The Kenwood KCA-R6A remote control generates a sequence like the following:
-Go low for approx 16T (Around 9000us)
-Go high for approx 8T (Around 4000us)
-Go low for less than 2T (Around 750us)
-For each of the 32 bits
- Go high for more than 2T (Around 1500us) == 1
- Go high for less than T (Around 400us) == 0
- Go low for less than 2T (Around 750us)
-Rather than repeat a signal when the button is held down certain buttons
-generate the following code to indicate repetition.
-Go low for approx 16T
-Go high for approx 4T
-Go low for less than 2T
-(By removing the <2T from the start of the sequence and placing at the end
- it can be considered a stop bit but I found it easier to deal with it at
- the start).
-The 32 bits are encoded as XxYy where x and y are the actual data values
-while X and Y are the logical inverses of the associated data values. Using

- prepare_write: called by the generic write path in VM to set up a write

- commit_write: If prepare_write succeeds, new data will be copied
