[PATCH 0/6] xserver: Memory leaks and input hotplug updates

Here are some changes/additions I've found needed for hotplugging
(both adding and removing) input devices successfully without leaking

Currently outstanding issues:

* D-Bus doesn't seem to like to receive DBUS_HANDLER_RESULT_NEED_MEMORY
  (BadAlloc). My client never received any response and the second call
  caused the X-server to go into a never-ending loop (the client is a
  python script based on Enleth's script)

* In my tests I can still se one memory leak (adding an input device,
  wait 1 sec, remove input device) on 0x1c00 bytes. Call-path:
  At the moment I'm not 100% sure where the deallocation of this memory
  should take place. It might work to put it in CloseDevice with the
  other valuator freeing. Good enough?

Btw, is the patch added to Bug#:10324 (x&y axis not scaled when reporting
extension motion events) in the pipe to be applied, or are there changes
needed before it can get that far?
