Crazy... I wrote [rawjoystick] and I don't think I ever saw it  
working... I think Olaf Matthes was the one who got it working...   
Anyway, that is defunct, as are [linuxevent] and [linuxjoystick].  All  
of this has been wrapped into [hid].

As for /dev/input/event?, you just need to have the 'evdev' module  
loaded to get those devices.
