Two new properties, one to enable drag lock, one to disable horizontal
scrolling. These properties are notable because they don't have a libinput
configuration option.

Drag lock is the ability to hold a button logically down when the physical
button has been released. This is mainly an accessibility feature and should
be handled by the compositor so that the appropriate notifications can be
displayed to the user. Alas, in X the compositor cannot intercept and
discard button events, so we need it implemented here.
The implementation is identical to that of the evdev driver.

Disabling horizontal scrolling is also a driver-only option and all it does
is discard the horizontal scroll delta. Again, this should be handled by the
toolkit at the widget level, enabling/disabling horizontal scrolling on a
global level is not ideal. But for the X stack we don't expect that all
toolkits and applications will be updated so to avoid regressions for users
the feature is implemented here.

Aside from that, a couple of cleanups in preparation for BSD support. Though
expect lots more work needed before libinput is usable on BSD, these were
just some low-hanging fruit.

Martin Pieuchot (2):
      Rename a local variable to not shadow the BSD strmode(3) function.
      Remove unneeded header, epoll(7) interface is not directly used.

Peter Hutterer (7):
      Rename main source file to x86libinput.c
      gitignore: add patterns for automake test suite and misc other bits
      Add drag lock support
      Add an option to disable horizontal scrolling
      Revamp server fd opening
      Use xf86OpenSerial instead of a direct open() call
      xf86-input-libinput 0.14.0

Yomi0 (1):
      Fix typo in libinput.man
