These tests need the evdev driver installed, along with correctly
functioning udev and other bits. As such, they need to not get run in
the general 'make check' process, but should instead be called from a
new 'make integration-check' target (thanks to Peter for the name btw).

I've also been unable to run these tests on debian unstable; I can
package and upload whatever additional bits are needed to make that work
by default.

The goal of doing integration testing to make sure the server works with
various drivers is laudable though; let's make sure it's usable by most
people (or at least by me :-) so that testing happens on a regular basis.
