[SDL] [PATCH] ML-8866 PS2->USB converter

This converter seems to go by several names -- Super Dual Box, Dual
USB Joypad, and who knows what else. Also branded differently with
different colour cases, etc. But it seems to all be the same
internals. It is a common converter used for StepMania, with several
posts Googleable trying to make it work in Linux. I got mine
yesterday and wanted to play stepmania, so I went ahead and made a
crude patch for libsdl to split this baby into two logical joysticks.
A couple notes about the patch:
This patch works well for two dance mats hooked up and playing
stepmania, however the mapping of the other buttons may be off. I
have no joystick which uses all the buttons the converter reports, so
I have no way of testing them.
The name I used 0925:8866 which is the USB ID, and what SDLjoytest-GL
reported is the name, even though lsusb shows Wisegroup, Ltd MP-8866
Dual USB Joypad, and the existing virtual joystick mapping uses the
Wisegroup... name. Not sure why the discrepency.
