SRU: Add input drivers package
 
SRU Justification:

Impact: Some of the newer wacom tablet models are not supported by the
in-kernel driver. Those seem to be mostly multi-touch capable tablets.

Fix: To add support without regressing the current kernel driver, the
LBM package will now have an input sub-packager (need to adapt meta!)
which contains the driver taken from linux-next.

Testcase: Testers in the bug report confirmed working tablets witht the
backports modules installed.

Note: While looking there I spotted a minor glitch in the rules. They do
not matter at the moment but might when we want LBM ALSA. I would vote to
slip in this minor nitpick wihtout too much fuzz.

* Obvious fix up for a typo. Looks sane and necessary.

Looks reasonable and has positive confirmation from bug reporters.
Since LBM is a purely elective install, I see no risk of regression.

SRU: Add input drivers package
 
Applied the version as sent to Maverick LBM

Made a note in the input patch about the wacom pm patch but I guess at some
point we need to update to a real upstream version and should then make sure
that pm patch is included.
