I've been working with Henrik on mtdev support in the X evdev module,
and I began sharing some of that work with Ben today. Ben and I seem to
be on the same page, and we are working out some small bugs before we
send a patch series on for review here. However, IMHO it would be easier
if the previous patches for protocol A were not applied first.

Ben, please feel free to chime in if you feel I've misrepresented the
state of things.

I think we can have a patch set ready for review by the end of this
