conf: drop libinput to below the other drivers

This is the continuation of 3f569ec4, dropping libinput below the remaining
drivers. Wacom and synaptics already sort higher anyway (see wacom commit
0da5cd54 and synaptics commit 59e5db025). evdev remains the catchall
basic fallback driver and is overwritten by libinput. The two drivers affected
by this patch are joystick and vmmouse.

joystick is a niche driver and drives devices libinput doesn't handle anyway
so there is no need to override. If a user installs it, presumably it is to
use it.

vmmouse is a niche driver and does not assign itself anymore for newer kernel
drivers (see vmmouse commit 576e8123 from Oct 2014). So if vmmouse is
installed it can safely sort higher than libinput.

Note: this is upstream behavior, distributions have to work out the wanted
behavior themselves by renaming the config snippets accordingly.
