Reorganize evdev plugins
linuxinput becomes evdevmouse. The experimental touch code is removed, now the plugin's purpose is solely to generate mouse events from absolute and relative pointer events. The plugin key is EvdevMouse. touchscreen becomes evdevtouch. The plugin key is EvdevTouch. In case keyboard support appears some day, it will fit nicely in the system by the name of evdevkeyboard or similar. Some little udev code is moved to platformsupport so it can be shared between the plugins. This may be extended later if more sophisticated udev support is needed. N.B. the intention is to keep this as simple as possible. We are shipping these plug-ins as reference examples, not as full-featured drivers. evdev and udev support has configure time tests from now on. This means the "drivers" (generic plugins) will get built automatically when the support is available.

+Generic plug-in for absolute & relative evdev pointer events.
+
+To use it, launch apps with -plugin EvdevMouse
+
+The plug-in will try to pick a mouse or touchpad device from udev.
+If automatic detection does not work, use -plugin
+EvdevMouse:/dev/input/eventN to explicitly set the device node.
+
+The initial cursor position is assumed to be (0, 0). Relative events
+will generate Qt mouse events with screen positions relative to this
+initial position.
