Support for disconnecting of webcamd evdev devices is tricky due to xorg
driver<->webcamd deadlock (Ask Hans for details).
Now it is handled in xf86-input-evdev, see
/usr/ports/x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev/files/patch-src_evdev.c, part started
from line 1062
I have similar hack to libinput:
Probably, something similar should be done for xf86-input-wacom
