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?
