  Currently, any server symbol is accessible to drivers, but I suggest only
using those that are exported, and declared in /usr/include/xorg.h.
  Try using ctags to find symbols and data types in the xserver tree, 
and check
some of the input modules sources (xorg/driver/xf86-input-* repositories)
for examples of (hopefully) working input drivers.
