Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux 8
Component/s: Userspace


without this fix, xserver will hang on checking input device. i.e . you will find that mouse can't move and monitor can't receive keyboard input too. 

Steps to Reproduce

remove this patch and boot wrl8 with sato rootfs. xserver will hang on forever.

1:wrlinux-8/wrlinux/configure --enable-board=intel-x86-64 --enable-rootfs=glibc_std-sato --enable-kernel=standard
2: chose a x86-64 target with intel graphic card(meaning requir i915 driver)
3:booting wrlinux, as expect, X11 wil boot and work well. but, you would observe the X11 hang if you remove this commit.
