1.222.1. RHBA-2010:0246: bug fix update

Updated xorg-x11-drv-evdev packages that fix a potential division by zero bug are now available.
The xorg-x11-drv-evdev packages provide an X input device driver that lets the X server read input events from the evdev kernel interface.
This update applies the following bug fixes:
* an invalid axis range can result in a division by zero error upon moving the mouse, crashing the X server. (BZ#371151)
* the release string in the spec file for the packages has changed from %{dist} to %{?dist}. (BZ#548008)
All users of this package are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
