Two major patches here:
* updated documentation to inform users that a filed descriptor should be
  drained of any pending events before passed into libevdev_set_fd. In most
  cases this doesn't matter, if your program opens the fd and lets some time
  elapse before initializing the libevdev context, you should read the
  updated documentation.
* a potential race condition in the creation of uinput devices could return
  the wrong syspath. This race condition only existed on kernels without the
  UI_GET_SYSNAME ioctl (available since 3.15).

Peter Hutterer (5):
      Document that the fd should be drained before libevdev_set_fd
      tools: fix coverty "may be used uninitialized" warnings
      tools: shut up coverity about a potential close(-1)
      uinput: fix race condition in uinput syspath check
      libevdev 1.4.6
