    Unfortunately, it takes forever on this machine to compile a kernel
    after any bigger changes. I can do it early next week when I have access
    to my bigger box again.

    On the other hand, it should be easily reproducible by anyone else with
    the same trick, here's what I do:

    * configure X to use /dev/input/event* devices
    * in an xterm, do something like
    rmmod usbhid ; modprobe usbhid
    * switch to a VT
    * watch kernel crash as X releases the grab on the event device

    Mind you, I actually did this with the appletouch driver, but I don't
    think it makes a difference since the problematic thing is the code that
    X grabs the device. A trivial program that executes the grab ioctl would
    probably suffice if you leave it running over a rmmod/modprobe cycle.
