Default sparse-keymap backports to aid in hotkey debugging

With these patches sparse-keymap will emit MSC_SCAN events for all keys
as well as KEY_UNKNOWN events for keys not in the keymap, allowing for
easy diagnosis of malfunctioning hotkeys using userspace utilities.


The following changes since commit 68270e62f769f441734287e5d629b49c795e20be:

UBUNTU: Ubuntu-2.6.38-8.41 (2011-04-05 09:39:06 -0700)

are available in the git repository at:
git://kernel.ubuntu.com/sforshee/ubuntu-natty.git sparse-backports

Seth Forshee (2):
Input: sparse-keymap - report scancodes with key events
Input: sparse-keymap - report KEY_UNKNOWN for unknown scan codes

applied - don't forget to propose for stable (which seems appropriate in
this case).

Huh, I wasn't thinking of these as stable material, since they're just
helpful for troubleshooting and don't really fix anything. Under what
circumstances are non-fix patches accepted in the stable trees? Because
I don't really see it described in stable_kernel_rules.txt.

Thanks,
Seth
