Fix touchpads with evdevmouse
evdevmouse only worked properly with real mice, the ABS event handling was somewhat broken, it wasn't possible to properly move a mouse cursor with a touchpad due to unwanted jumps. The button handling is also corrected. Change-Id: Id04ef65d867a75bcfc54240d192a78224a4481d6 Reviewed-by: Jørgen Lind <>

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.
+Touchpads reporting absolute events will work too, the positions will
