From: Patrik Fimml <patrikf@chromium.org>

Userspace might want to implement a policy to temporarily disregard input
from certain devices, including not treating them as wakeup sources.

An example use case is a laptop, whose keyboard can be folded under the
screen to create tablet-like experience. The user then must hold the laptop
in such a way that it is difficult to avoid pressing the keyboard keys. It
is therefore desirable to temporarily disregard input from the keyboard,
until it is folded back. This obviously is a policy which should be kept
out of the kernel, but the kernel must provide suitable means to implement
such a policy.

This patch adds a sysfs interface for exactly this purpose.

To implement the said interface it adds an "inhibited" property to struct
input_dev and two optional methods - inhibit() and uninhibit(), and
effectively creates four states a device can be in: closed uninhibited,
closed inhibited, open uninhibited, open inhibited. It also defers calling
driver's ->open() and ->close() to until they are actually needed, e.g. it
makes no sense to prepare the underlying device for generating events
(->open()) if the device is inhibited.

              uninhibit
closed      <------------ closed
uninhibited ------------> inhibited
      | ^     inhibit        | ^
 1st  | |               1st  | |
 open | |               open | |
      | |                    | |
      | | last               | | last
      | | close              | | close
      v |     uninhibit      v |
open        <------------ open
uninhibited ------------> inhibited

The top inhibit/uninhibit transition happens when users == 0.
The bottom inhibit/uninhibit transition happens when users > 0.
The left open/close transition happens when !inhibited.
The right open/close transition happens when inhibited.
Due to all transitions being serialized with dev->mutex, it is impossible
to have "diagonal" transitions between closed uninhibited and open
inhibited or between open uninhibited and closed inhibited.

open() and close() - if provided - are called in both inhibit and uninhibit
paths. Please note that close() does not return a value, so if your driver
might need failing inhibiting, you need to provide inhibit() so that it
returns a value to check.

It is drivers' responsibility to implement their inhibiting capability in
terms of whatever is suitable in their context, be it open/close,
inhibit/uninhibit or a combination of both. The drivers should also ensure
that they properly interact with suspend/resume and PM runtime, because
most likely a side effect of inhibiting a device should be its going into
low power mode. Properly inhibiting a device means to prevent it from being
a wakeup source, so drivers should also take care of that.
