udev appears to work for me at least now, with nothing other than
the trivial udev config file that Peter posted as a patch to the evdev

And, given that most distros will be shipping with udev turned on, it
seems only sensible to have that be the default for 1.8 as well.

I think what I want at this point is a patch to the X server that
installs suitable udev config files as needed; having it be a part of
the evdev driver leaves users in the fine position of installing a new X
server and having things break, so it seems sensible to have the needed
config file land in the module which actually requires it to work.

Here's my /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-evdev.conf file:

Section "InputClass"
        Identifier "evdev-catchall"
        Driver "evdev"
        MatchDevicePath "/dev/input/event*"

I heard a couple of people suggesting that this be renamed to a higher
number so that you could get files read before it. Let's try to get this
resolved today or tomorrow; we're supposed to ship this thing in a
couple of days.
