evdev_drv does not work with GS in absolute mode

The evdev X driver does not work when used with the APLS GlideSensor in absolute mode. The cursor moves only vertically, and remains stuck all the way to the left of the screen.
With X 1.3, we forced relative mode by setting an option in the driver section in xorg.conf.
This is no longer possible with X 1.4 and its input autoconfiguration, so we need a kernel patch to hint hal, and thus evdev, into thinking the device is relative (i.e.: mouse-like).
