I have tried to separate my work with other people's work, but there 
still some of other people's code left in my patch set as mentioned by 
Colin Harrison in 
http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/xorg/2007-May/024955.html. I 
apologize for my careless. I try to track down the source of all the 
patches. Here is the result.

1. The code for dix/events.c in #2 is from bugzilla #9797. Eric Anholt, 
could you revert this part of code from git and refer to the bug #9797 ?

2. The code for GetTimeInMillis() in #9 is also merged from Colin 
Harrison's patch, could you revert it? I should have cleaned it before I 
post my patch set.

3. #11, #12 also contain codes merge from Colin Harrison's patch, don't 
apply it to git.

Sorry for all these inconvenient. I have no intend to plagiarize other 
people's work. I just want to make cross compile of xwin work again.
