libevdev 1.5.0 is now available

The main change in this version is the transparent use of the new uinput
ioctls available in kernels 4.5 and later. These ioctls now allow for
setting the abs resolution field without the previous danger of race
conditions. This obviously only affects the creation of uinput devices,
libevdev itself was otherwise unchanged.

Option parsing in libevdev-tweak-device has been fixed too, so the previous
quirky behavior is now sensible. And it now allows for numeric axis names
for those axes that don't have a #define.

Peter Hutterer (12):
      test: drop unnecessary return value
      test: ignore a failure to UI_DEV_DESTROY the device
      Add parsing linux/input-event-codes.h, update to kernel v4.5
      include: update to v4.5 linux/uinput.h
      uinput: drop an unused argument
      uinput: split uinput device creation into a helper function
      uinput: support the new UI_DEV_SETUP/UI_ABS_SETUP ioctls
      Fix typo in doc string
      doc: reduce doxygen file to the non-default settings
      tools: fix tweak-device option parsing
      tools: allow numeric axis values in tweak-device
      libevdev 1.5
