Bug Description

The current udev code that parses USB IDs from udev is broken. It
doesn't work for USB devices right now, and even if it was fixed up as
is it would still be broken for bluetooth devices. This means I can't
distinguish between my Apple Magic Trackpad and Bamboo Touch because:

1. The Apple Magic Trackpad's product name is derived when you configure
it in OS X. My trackpad's name in udev is "cndougla's trackpad".

2. The USB ID of the trackpad would return the USB ID of my bluetooth
receiver instead of the ID of the trackpad, if the code were fixed up

  [ Chase Douglas ]
  * Fix udev USB product ID parsing (LP: #628214)
    - debian/patches:
      + 205_udev-product-ids.patch

  [ Christopher James Halse Rogers ]
  * debian/patches/206_intel_8xx_default_to_fbdev.patch:
    - Don't autoload the intel driver on i830, i845g and i855. These are
      still too unstable with KMS/GEM. X will autoload the fbdev driver
      (if using KMS) or the vesa driver instead. (LP: #633593)
