    And which kernel is this patch against? It is not evident from the

    It failed miserably when I applied it against 2.0.25. (5 out of 7
    hunks failed or something like that). But I was able to patch it by
    hand easily enough. It looks like your patch first takes OUT some
    changes for raw keyboard entry that have been added since 2.0.25
    and then adds IN your own changes.

    All I had to do was edit the -'s out of your patch. I didn't have the
    lines to - out. I guess that your patch was against a 2.1.* kernel
    since I can't imagine raw keyboard entry being mucked about with
    between 2.0.25 and 2.0.29, which is the other possibility.
