If you really want it to get in just do it via DI. Use old patches and 
projects like x360ce for ideas, code, and documentation. Too bad x360ce is 
in c#.

Implementing XInput "properly" via X11 is impossible. X11 does not support 
force-feedback joysticks. One can wait for another 5 years for broken 
interface. And another 5 to get it fixed.
