From: Kamal Mostafa
Date: Thu Nov 12 2015 - 18:57:29 EST

3.19.8-ckt10 -stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: "covici@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx" <covici@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit b1d562acc78f0af46de0dfe447410bc40bdb7ece upstream.

Here is a patch to make speakup-r work again.

It broke in 3.6 due to commit 4369c64c79a22b98d3b7eff9d089196cd878a10a
"Input: Send events one packet at a time)

The problem was that the fakekey.c routine to fake a down arrow no
longer functioned properly and putting the input_sync fixed it.

Fixes: 4369c64c79a22b98d3b7eff9d089196cd878a10a
