evdev 2.4.0 is now available. Most of the bugfixes had already found their
way into the 2.3 stable branch, but there are a few new behaviours/features
to watch out for. These include:
- no reopen attempts anymore. The reopen mechanism was mainly a feature to
  work around older kernels that would return ENODEV on the first read (but
  not during DEVICE_ON). I haven't seen this in a long time now, suggesting
  that the feature was simply dead weight now.
- A number of build system cleanups that have been applied to most other
  modules too.
- Touch screens disable mouse button emulation by default.
- keycodes > 255 are now forwarded. The server doesn't do anything with
  them, but at least we can claim the evdev-driver is ready for the future
  with flying donkeys and whatnot.
- Absolute devices can now change mode between relative and absolute, and
  they may employ wheel emulation too.
