[PATCH weston 0/5] Touchpad support

This series of changes introduces better support for touchpads when using
evdev for input handling. Some of the ideas and algorithms used comes from
the xserver and xf86-input-synaptics repositories.

The various functionality implemented are anti-flicker (avoid jumping
around), smoother motions, touch detection, pointer acceleration and
some more.
Pointer acceleration is implemented as one generic part, and one touch
specific part.

I have only access to one touchpad device, so I'd appreciate any feedback
on compatibility.

Some interesting question arises and that is configuration. A user would
probably want to change pointer acceleration, sensitivity parameters etc
without rebuilding - are there any plans of how these types of
interfaces should work?
