Very strange, I didn't see it until I rebooted, but apparently when I
put a file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ it prevents any of the other configs
from /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/ from ever running, and thus it renders
everything *but* my touchpad (for which I made the config) useless.
Can't even log in or switch to a VT because the keyboard is dead.
Instead I put my new file in /usr/lib/X11/xorg.conf.d/ and now it works
just fine. Bug? Feature? Who knows.
