Hi Dmitry,

While struggling to make evtest show keyboard events, I discovered
that the problem is an incompatibility with mouseemu
( as killing it makes the
keyboard work fine.

So, with mouseemu running, evtest won't print any event at all even if
I move the mouse, and when mouseemu is off everything works fine and
evtest prints the expected events.

Yup, I get the exact same behaviour with an external USB keyboard and
mouseemu running: keystrokes being delivered only when I finally move
the mouse or the trackpad.
