/dev/input/js? are created by the "joydev" and use a data struct
specific to joysticks. The /dev/input/event? devices are created by
"evdev" and use a data struct designed to be general to all human
So you need to "modprobe evdev" and find which /dev/input/event? device
your joysticks are on. I am planning on making this much easier in
future versions of [hid], with device names like: [hid joystick1], [hid
