my understanding is that evbug is strictly for debugging (hence the
big output). Unless you are specifically using it you should rmmod it
and blacklist it or remove it from your kernel altogether.

interestingly, I don't find it in my modules anywhere (sid here) but I
seem to recall it in earlier kernels. I wonder if you are stuck in a
transition -- some upgrade has removed it from your blacklists, but
its still in the kernel and getting inserted automatically.
