Subject[RFC PATCH] input: Add disable sysfs entry for every input device
Date
This patch allows user to disable events from any input device so events
would not be delivered to userspace.

Currently there is no way to disable particular input device by kernel.
User for different reasons would need it for integrated PS/2 keyboard or
touchpad in notebook or touchscreen on mobile device to prevent sending
events. E.g. mobile phone in pocket or broken integrated PS/2 keyboard.

This is just a RFC patch, not tested yet. Original post about motivation
about this patch is there: https://lkml.org/lkml/2014/11/29/92
