    Ok, I applied this because I will do an -rc8 today or tomorrow, but I
    really really hope somebody can figure out what made this all start to
    trigger. It does smell like some core device layer change, because we do
    not seem to have a lot of changes since 2.6.24 in evdev.c and input.c that
    seem relevant.

    Greg, are there any refcounting changes that would cause the input devices
    to be free'd earlier or something?
