For completeness sake: I only tested with 1.3.17. I'm not updating because of
bug 27156

The Mac OS X joystick code has not changed between 1.3.17 and git head though.

It's strange that previously it didn't see the joystick and now it does. I did
not change anything whatsoever to the joystick detection code (and as mentioned
in my original message, in my case the gamepad was already seen before I
applied my patch).

The current joystick code can report up to six regular axes (X, Y, Z, and then
"rotation" variants of those same axes), an "unlimited" number of additional
axes (translated from HID "slider" controls), and an "unlimited" number of POV
(point-of-view) controls. "Unlimited" in this context means "as long as the
total number of controls, including buttons, is <= 127".
