bug#23810: avoid.el: mouse-avoidance-ignore-p does not ignore file-notif

From: Jonathan Kotta
Subject: bug#23810: avoid.el: mouse-avoidance-ignore-p does not ignore file-notify events

I use mpd and ncmpcpp.  mpd allows sending sound data to a fifo, and ncmpcpp can read from that fifo and do sound visualizations with the data.  So when mpd is playing, it is constantly writing to the fifo and generating file-notify events.  I'm not entirely sure why Emacs is receiving these events, but it is, and it causes mouse avoidance to kick in without typing.  I can't reproduce the the problem reliably, but it occurs regularly.  The attached patch fixes it for me, and it just makes sense for mouse-avoidance-ignore-p to ignore file-notify events.  I'm not sure if there are additional types of events that it should also ignore; I couldn't find an exhaustive list of all the event types.
