While neod is certainly overdoing it here, don't let yourself be fooled into 
thinking we would only seldomly read the accellerators. Once we have the 
gesture library, we certainly want to use the accels a lot -- after all, 
that's why they're built in.

Kernel-side should be prepared for userland doing heavy use of all peripherals 
at any time :)
