Subject[PATCH] Add KD_X console mode to avoid keyboard passthrough
When using the evdev input driver, X currently claims the devices 
exclusively in order to prevent characters leaking through to the
underlying VT. This has the downside that other consumers of input
events no longer receive the keys - rfkill and mouseemu no longer work
in the kernel, and hal is unable to pass through input events. Removing
the exclusive access results in events being passed through to the
underlying VT, which may result in leaking sensitive information.

This patch adds an extra KD_X mode. It's semantically identical to
KD_GRAPHICS, except that keyboard events are no longer sent to the
console device. This allows X to avoid exclusive access without breaking
any applications which depend upon the existing KD_GRAPHICS semantics.
