Yes. I would like to see generic method to turn off input device 
(or just "mute" it if device does not support turn off). Similar 
problem is also on laptops or other portable devices. E.g when I 
close LID of my laptop I want to turn off internal input devices 
(keyboard, touchpad, trackstick) without need to unload evdev 
Xserver drivers (or killing Xserver). Another use case is to turn 
off keyboard (also from kernel tty on Ctrl+Alt+Fx) which cannot 
be unplugged (internal laptop keyboard).

CCed Dmitry, what do you think about it?
