The main problem with uep(4) was either xorg-server or xf86-input-egalax
started doing asynchronous I/O on the device node using fcntl(F_SETOWN);
the original uep(4) expected userland to open(2)/read(2) the device
node.  I had to add the FIOSETOWN support, but I don't know if there's a
way to remove a process as owner (call fcntl(F_SETOWN, NULL)?).  If so,
I'll need to handle that case.

I can stick this up in the FreeBSD code review site if desired.
