Subject[PATCH] reduce CONFIG_INPUT as forward symbol (with diff)
[repost with patch this time]

Hi,

I've been using gcml2 from Greg Banks to look at CONFIG_
variable dependencies in config.in files.

By moving drivers/input/config.in before drivers/char/Config.in
and drivers/usb/Config.in for arch/alpha and arch/mips(64),
several (7) instances of this message:
forward declared symbol "CONFIG_INPUT" used in dependency list
and (6) instances of this one:
forward declared symbol "CONFIG_SOUND_GAMEPORT" used in
dependency list
can be removed. (Yes, the latter one is for OSS drivers,
so it's not so important.)

It also adds one forward dependency for a USB joystick
in the input subsystem [still only for alpha and mips(64)].
Most other arches are already like this.

This patch is to 2.5.31-bk7 (jgarzik's latest snapshot).
Please apply.

Yes, I forgot the patch...too late last night.
It's now below.

This patch just makes alpha and mips(64) use the same ordering
for "source drivers/input/Config.in" that most other arches use,
so that there are fewer forward references to CONFIG_INPUT.

Please apply.
