freeze exception for xserver-xorg-input-evdev


xf86-input-evdev 2.0.8 is a bugfix release, see the upstream changelog
below.  I'd like to see xserver-xorg-input-evdev/1:2.0.8-1 in lenny.

Most of the changes are due to a fix for resume, where the driver might
have to reopen the device file, and make sure that it's still the same
device as before suspend.

    Don't post keycodes > 255.
    If we only have keys > 255 we don't set up a key class rec, so don't post
    them. It makes the server unhappy.

    Set pInfo->fd to -1 on DEVICE_CLOSE
    This allows the reopen logic to kick in later.
    DEVICE_CLOSE gets called on regen, so without this we'd keep a stale
    file descriptor in pInfo->fd in subsequent sessions.

    Close fd on DEVICE_OFF. (LP #276887)
    Leaving the fd open means we still get keyboard events after VT switching
    away. Coming back, some of these events are replayed on the application that
    has the current focus.
    1. open terminal, focus.
    2. VT switch away
    3. type something, preferably a password
    4. VT switch back, trigger a mouse event
    5. Observe the X server guessing your password.
    Closing the fd on DEVICE_OFF fixes this. Reopen is handled by the reopen
    code introduced with

    Attempt to re-open devices on read errors.
    Coming back from resume may leave us with a file descriptor that can be opened
    but fails on the first read (ENODEV).
    In this case, try to open the device until it becomes available or until the
    predefined count expires. To be safe, we cache the information from the device
    and compare against it when we re-open. This way we ensure that if the
    topology changes under us, we don't open a completely different device. If a
    device has changed, we disable it.
    Adds option "ReopenAttempts" <int>

    Print a warning if a keycode exceeds the range accepted by the server.
    Keycodes over 255 are silently ignored in the server. The least we can do is
    put a warning in the logs.
