In the public interest then, here is an updated LIRC config, and additionally a kernel rc configuration file for the Samsung Astro Byond decoders. Be warned: the kernel rc configuration is using standard key codes, including KEY_POWER, which may cause your PC to shutdown in many default configurations of GNU/Linux desktops - where all available input devices are grabbed by X. Changing to KEY_POWER2 might help with that particular problem - but unless you configure X to ignore the remote control, you'll still see side effects from other keys.
1. The kernel configuration file (/etc/rc_keymaps/AstroByond).

2. A traditional lirc configuration file (/usr/local/share/lirc/remotes/AstroByond.conf). Note that the codes seem to be 2s complements of the values above, with an additional prefix. I'm not sure whether this is due to a difference in the way LIRC interprets codes compared with the kernel drivers, or if it is a result of misdetection of other parameters. LIRC's auto-detection is a bit off anyway, as it failed to detect the toggle_bit_mask, and I had to first detect as raw codes, then analyze the resulting file. I think spotted a pattern of alternation between 85xx and 8Dxx for the lower 16 bits, so figured that the toggle_bit_mask was 0x8000. After setting that manually, the remote became very responsive in irw. I did similar manual patching of bit 15 in the ir-keytable results above, but it doesn't seem to make a difference there, just looks cleaner if the keys all have the same prefix.
