Input: polled device - do not start polling if interval is zero
Samu Onkalo [Mon, 23 Nov 2009 18:01:33 +0000 (10:01 -0800)]
If the poll interval is set to 0 via new sysfs entry and device is
opened after that, polling is started with interval 0. This causes
huge CPU load. Same happens if the rate was 0 when the device was
closed and then reopened.
