This is the sync up with the canonical definitions of the input,
sound and display protocols in Xen.

Changes to kbdif:
1. Add missing string constants for {feature|request}-raw-pointer
      to align with the rest of the interface file.

2. Add new XenStore feature fields, so it is possible to
      control set of exposed virtual devices for each guest OS:
        - set feature-disable-keyboard to 1 if no keyboard device
          to be created
        - set feature-disable-pointer to 1 if no pointer device needs
          to be created

3. Move multi-touch device parameters to backend nodes: these are
       described as a part of frontend's XenBus configuration nodes
       while they belong to backend's configuration. Fix this by
       the parameters to the proper section.

Unique-id field:
1. Add unique-id XenBus entry for virtual input and display.

2. Change type of unique-id field to string for sndif to align with
display and input protocols.

I'm fine with this patch being added via the input tree with the

I created an immutable branch off v4.17 with these 3 patches in case
would want to merge them into your tree without waiting for them to
appear in mainline:

git pull git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/dtor/input.git

Thank you,
I would prefer the fastest path of course
It will be part of 4.19 pull request; the immutable branch is for
Juergen if he does not want to wait till 4.19 merge window to get the
Ah, I see. Juergen, can we please merge this via Xen tree then which
I assume will be faster?
As Dmitry has it already queued in the input tree I think this is fine.
I trust him to take the right decision for which kernel version those
patches are to be queued. They belong to the input tree after all.
Of course, no doubt here
