evdev steals the keyboard

Hello everyone,

I just pulled a fresh Xorg from git and compiled everything.
But now I have the problem, that evdev seems to "steal" my keyboard in 
the following sense: the kernel detects the keyboard as an event device 
and therefore registers /dev/event/input0 for it. After scanning my 
original keyboard configuration in xorg.conf evdev detects 
/dev/event/input0 as a keyboard and initializes it with some default 
values which is bad, because it ignores my model, language, layout etc. 
Is that behaviour intended? How can I change that?

Best regards, Johannes
