tools: switch the libinput tool to be an exec-ing tool
Chaining args together inside a single binary would be nice, but it gets nasty quickly (as I found out adding 3, 4 extra commands). Switch over to using a git-style exec-ing command where libinput merely changes argv[0] and then executes whatever it assembled. And those binaries can hide in libexec so they don't clutter up the global namespace. This also makes it a lot easier to write man pages, adopt the same style as git uses. Compatibilty wrapper scripts are provided for libinput-list-devices and libinput-debug events. These warn the user about the changed command, then exec the new one. Expect these wrappers to be removed at some point in the future. Signed-off-by: Peter Hutterer <>
