[ANNOUNCE] libevdev 1.4.6

Two major patches here:
• updated documentation to inform users that a filed descriptor should
  be drained of any pending events before passed into libevdev_set_fd.
  In most cases this doesn't matter, if your program opens the fd and
  lets some time elapse before initializing the libevdev context, you
  should read the updated documentation.
• a potential race condition in the creation of uinput devices could
  return the wrong syspath. This race condition only existed on kernels
  without the UI_GET_SYSNAME ioctl (available since 3.15).

Peter Hutterer (5):
      Document that the fd should be drained before libevdev_set_fd
      tools: fix coverty "may be used uninitialized" warnings
      tools: shut up coverity about a potential close(-1)
      uinput: fix race condition in uinput syspath check
      libevdev 1.4.6
