remote control DPMS wakeup on native LIRC event

When mythfrontend is left alone long enough for DPMS to suspend the monitor, a keyboard or mouse event is required to wake it up.

I've looked through trac and the code; it appears that although LIRC events are processed as keypress events, the injection occurs at the Qt layer while the DPMS event is generated by X.

There do appear to be TRAC entries related to this issue; nevertheless it still occurs. I have not investigated too deeply, but this issue could be masked when lircmd is in use.

I will attach a patch to inject a screensaver reset event when a native LIRC event is processed.

This is only relevant on installations using a DPMS-compatible output device (VGA,DVI,HDMI).

Consensus on the -dev list seems to be that this is unneeded.
