Description Peter Hutterer 2011-06-01 00:17:56 UTC
Description of problem:
X doesn't provide a mapping between X device and kernel device. If evdev exports the device node it uses, the mapping to sysfs paths etc can be handled by a  client.

Additional info:
Upstream already has this in git, simple backport.
