    Install input{,-event-types}.h to /usr/include/compat/linux too.
    It helps preventing excessive patches in ravenport's weston.
    It is kind of experimental, but depending on how useful it
    proves to be for 3rd party software all in all, we will
    eventually remove /usr/include/dev/misc/evdev in the future.
    A -I /usr/include/compat is needed to get at these headers using
    "#include <linux/input.h>", etc. They were not put in the default
    include path to mislead configure scripts and the likes.
    We will also evaluate if it is worth exposing further linux
    specific headers in this directory.
    It might even be that we change the new location again in the
