Add support for sky2 network adapters with Optima chips. Make hdpvr infrared controller register so that a remote control can be used with it.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
