Recent revisions

38. By Hanno Stock (hefe_bia)

Added 102_revert_evdev_grab_device.patch: Revert git revision that leads to passing all input to the underlying VT with Intrepid's version of X.

37. By Bryce Harrington

Add 101_evdevcachecompare_errmsgs.patch: Provides more specific error
messages to assist in debugging issues where currently it merely says,
"Device has changeddisabling", such as in 327175.

36. By Bryce Harrington

Add 100_exclude_touchscreen_pos.patch as cherry-pick from upstream:
EvdevCacheCompare fails because it also compares all values of
input_absinfo structure, which include the last tapped position of the
touchscreen (.value field). This is never updated in the cache, and
anyway it could change anytime if the screen is touched while away
from the X virtual console.
(LP: #322946)

35. By Timo Aaltonen

* Merge with Debian experimental, remaining changes:
  - Don't install the fdi file, hal in ubuntu already ships one.
* Drop 100_dont_check_abi.patch, since the new xserver has a higher
  INPUT_ABI already.

34. By Loïc Minier

Rebuild against new xorg-server for armel.

33. By Timo Aaltonen

Rebuild against the new xserver.

32. By Timo Aaltonen

* Merge from Debian experimental, remaining changes:
  - 100_dont_check_abi.patch: Don't check for XINPUT_VERSION >= 3, since
    our xserver & libXi has those bits backported.
  - Bump the build-dep on xserver-xorg-dev and x11proto-input-dev.
* Don't install the fdi file, hal in ubuntu already ships one.

31. By Timo Aaltonen

101_64bit_safe_testbit.patch: On amd64 evdev would be used for joysticks
because TestBit would return a wrong value. (LP: #284951)

30. By William Grant

Rebuild against new x11proto-input-dev.

29. By Timo Aaltonen

Cherry-pick commit 7243116f from upstream, "Don't post keycodes > 255."
(LP: #274203)
