The SDL library (already used by qemu for keyboard/mouse/display) has
joystick support. I had a go at implementing joystick support a while
back, but it doesn't work yet - my test case, TIE Fighter on MS-DOS,
responded initially but would stop responding to movement/buttons
halfway through the calibration.

I was actually planning to dust it off this coming weekend and try to
get it working. If anyone else is really eager to have a go before then,
let me know and I'll throw a patch together.
