olpc-kbdshim must be udev-compatible for F15

hal is going away, so kbdshim needs to change.

initial changes have been made to the kbdshim sources: there is a new daemon available called olpc-kbdshim-udev which monitors udev events, and replumbs them to a virtual input device just as the other kbdshim programs do.

what's missing is a mechanism to keep the X server from picking up the "direct" devices -- it should only use the virtual device. this worked for the hal version due to some EVIOCGRAB trickery, but now we need something new.

Can you confirm that this has been resolved in version 18, as I see in  http://dev.laptop.org/git/users/pgf/olpc-kbdshim/ ?

Thanks, Nicola
