Description Alexander Todorov 2011-08-31 14:24:50 UTC
Cloning for RHEL 7.

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #676300 +++

Description of problem:

This is tracker to follow https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=28682

I've managed to reach the 32 evdev devices limit on a big multi-seat system. Growing the system further is limited by this fact. Would love to see this fixed in Fedora and then backported to RHEL.
