    Well, I want to embed the input-ff.c into the input module too.

    Indeed... There are these 4 options as far as I see:

    1. Do this rename
    2. Put all the code in input-ff.c to input.c
    3. Make the input-ff a separate bool "module" and add
    EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL() for input_ff_event() which is currently the only
    function in input-ff.c that is called from input.c
    4. Rename the input "module" to something else, it doesn't matter so
    much as almost everybody builds it as built-in anyway.

    WDYT is the best one?
