Thanks for the materials. If you don't mind, could you please

I think that we have no plans for evdev. Is that correct?
There's occasional talk about making all ( or at least the most
common ) keyboard drivers emit USB-style scancodes when in event mode,
instead of native ones, which would finally allow the keyboard mux to
actually combine events from different types of keyboards. No work has
been done on this ( that I'm aware of at least ), I'll eventually do
it for Sun and ADB keyboards, someone will have to deal with PS/2 ones
( the only PS/2 hardware I have is a shark and a few sgimips boxes ).
I'm not exactly familiar with evdev and what else it does besides
multiplexing input device events. Right now there is no way to tell
from which device any given event actually came ( when received
through a mux ), and I'm not sure if there is currently a (useful) way
to enumerate which devices are hooked up to a given mux. That might
have to change.
None of this is all that complicated, we're probably fairly close to
(near) equivalent functionality already, or at least we can get there
without too much trouble. Adding fields to struct wsevent would break
binary compatibility though.
