[PATCH 0/2] evdev: Support EmulateWheelTimeout

These patches add support for a timeout in the wheel emulation code in
the evdev driver. This allows a device to emit the original button
events if the emulating button is released before the specified timeout.
The code has been basically ported from the mouse driver. With this
functionality, I can use the Trackpoint on my Thinkpad exactly as I was
with the mouse driver.

This is my first go at driver code, so please check for mistakes. Also,
the XI property code is completely untested since I did this work
against a 1.5 server.
