X Input Protocol 1.5.0

Additions over 1.4: input device properties support.

IDP are modelled after window properties and work much in the same manner.
Each X Input device can have multiple properties of arbitrary types at any
point in time. These properties can be interpreted by the server and/or the
driver and thus allow cheap, easily expandable ways of configuring devices.

IDP can also be read by other clients, allowing clients to label devices or
device specific features. Two of the more obvious cases are to label a device
as "primary", or to label each axis to denote it's function ("press", "tilt",
"rotation", etc.).

For those reading commit logs: IDP were originally added as XGE events as part
of XI2, then backported to traditional events.


Peter Hutterer (10):
      Back out Device Properties from XI 2, push into XI 1.5.
      Protect against C++ includes.
      Add libXi's property interfaces.
      PropertyNotify, move deviceid back to last byte.
      Remove RCS tags, typo fix.
      Make sure Atoms are defined as CARD32.
      Undef Atom after we're done so we don't pollute users of XIproto.h
      Add XI_JOYSTICK type.
      Remove Configure/QueryDeviceProperty.
