    Input: add userio module · 5523662e

    Debugging input devices, specifically laptop touchpads, can be tricky
    without having the physical device handy. Here we try to remedy that
    with userio. This module allows an application to connect to a character
    device provided by the kernel, and emulate any serio device. In
    combination with userspace programs that can record PS/2 devices and
    replay them through the /dev/userio device, this allows developers to
    debug driver issues on the PS/2 level with devices simply by requesting
    a recording from the user experiencing the issue without having to have
    the physical hardware in front of them.
