Keyboard-remote integration not working after Home Assistant 0.102.3 upgrade

Not sure what happened, but my flirc ird usb keyboards stopped working after Home Assistant 0.102.3 upgrade.

It was working fine with this configuration.yaml snippet:

##########################
# flirc remote keyboard
# device_name: 'flirc.tv flirc Keyboard'
##########################
keyboard_remote:
  - device_descriptor: /dev/input/by-id/usb-flirc.tv_flirc-if01-event-kbd
    type: 'key_up'
  - device_descriptor: /dev/input/by-id/usb-flirc.tv_flirc-event-kbd
    type: 'key_up'

I did get it working again by changing the config to:

##########################
# flirc remote keyboard
# device_name: 'flirc.tv flirc Keyboard'
##########################
keyboard_remote:
  - device_descriptor: /dev/input/event3
    type: 'key_up'
  - device_descriptor: /dev/input/event0
    type: 'key_up'

But I would prefer if the “BY-ID” descriptors worked again to keep the config more hardware independent.
