    All MT events bypass the input filtering and gets sent directly to the X driver.
    Although it works as intended, without visible side effects, the stream of
    events is rather large, and since the bypassing is completely new behavior, I
    felt compelled to provide an option to turn it all off. Perhaps it is just me
    being paranoid.

    I was imagining both for 2.6.33; the efi booting is just beginning to work, and
    since no distro is using it fully so far the problem currently only hits the
    adventure-seekers anyways.
