* input-raw cleaned up a bit
* input-raw supports more modern MT-only devices
* ts_open_restricted / ts_close_restricted API added
* galax-raw _disabled_ now by default

1.13-rc1 is out for testing now. The main reason is to see whether
disabling of module_raw galax (only by default) goes well. And I did
changes to the legacy ts_read() call, which I normally want to avoid,
but it should really only enable support for many more devices.

If you can, test 1.13-rc1. It should be safe to use.
