I am going to rewrite the current input stuff (RCU, LIRC, keyboard)
and make it more general, so that any device can provide user input.
While doing so I'll take a look into the /dev/input/eventX stuff.
However, I won't be able to do this today...
@Holger Wächtler: I can't seem to find the evtest.c example in my
copy of the NEWSTRUCT driver. Could it be that this is not checked in to
the CVS? There is no DVB/apps/av7110_loadkeys directory at all...
