SubjectRe: linux-next: Tree for July 30

Ok, I apparently missed this whole subthread yesterday, only getting back
to it when going over my old queues.

Yeah, it's not pretty, but how about moving that EV_KEY thing into the
switch() statement? Also, the printk could certainly be a bit more useful.

But before doing _any_ of that, the first thing to do should be to not
have that four-deep indentation by just splitting that horrible function
up a bit.

IOW, start off with a patch like the appended, and _then_ add the special
case handling to the EV_KEY thing. It would probably be most easily done
by just literally limiting "len" to OLD_KEY_MAX. Something like

#define OLD_KEY_MAX 0x1ff
...
case EV_KEY:
bits = dev->keybit;
len = KEY_MAX;
/* Hacky workaround for old bug in Xorg */
if (buf_len == OLD_KEY_MAX)
len = OLD_KEY_MAX;
break;
...

or similar.

Yeah, it's not pretty, but pragmatism before beauty.
