[Pkg-acpi-devel] Bug#619316: acpi-fakekey: Do not unload uinput kernel module on stop

Package: acpi-fakekey
Version: 0.138-8
Severity: normal


The kernel module uinput may serve more purposes than just as kernel interface
for only acpi-fakekey damon. It's okay to try to load it on start but please
do not unload it on stop.

Additionally, it may sound weird but there are people that do not have this as
module but built-in. They get a strange "failed" on stopping acpi-fakekey, e.g.
on an upgrade.
