Forwarding evdev devices to Android

I'm working on adding input support for Weston's Android backend, and to test a normal keyboard and a mouse, I needed a way to get those as evdev devices on Android. I don't have any Bluetooth devices here, so I started hacking up evdev forwarding from a laptop PC. I could not find much information on anyone doing this before.
