evdev joystick (by default)
...which allows SDL to talk to webcamd/iichid. (Webcamd actually bundles quite a few gamepad drivers.) Note that this does _not_ disable usbhid, both joystick backends will be compiled.
Can you suggest extra-patch-evdev-joystick patch to upstream?

Somehow I don't feel like it at the moment. Do you mind creating an issue there? (Note that the file for one of the backends should be renamed as well, the build actually depends on filenames not colliding.)
