just as you stagger home from the release party for the mouse and keyboard
driver, here's another one for the joystick driver. An accumulated bunch (5)
fixes, some of them almost 4 years old, the hair of the dog looks tempting
now, doesn't it?

On a more serious note, this is the last release for the joystick driver.
I'll put the usual 'discontinued' messages into the repository over the next
couple of days.

To prevent at least some of the ... "encouraging" emails: this driver does
*not* make your joystick work. This driver is solely for making a joystick
behave like a mouse pointer, which is a decidedly niche case to begin with.

Hans de Goede (3):
      Use jstkCloseDevice_* on error in jstkOpenDevice_* backend functions
      Add a generic jstkCloseDevice helper function
      Add support for server managed fds

Matthieu Herrb (1):
      use xf86{Add,Remove}EnabledDevice()

Peter Hutterer (2):
      Handle DEVICE_ABORT for input ABI 19.1
      joystick 1.6.3
