libevdev 184.108.40.2061 leaks two symbols that can have a potential conflict with its users:
$ nm libevdev.a | grep log_
0000000000000000 T log_msg
0000000000000000 T log_priority
see Bug 82292 for an example of a conflict with libinput.
Controlling symbol visibility in a static library turns out to be rather tricky, so our best bet is making sure that the symbols don't leak in the first place, or are properly namespaced. see the thread below for the latter:
This bug is mostly for the archives so we can point to something.

Rename symbols leaking from static library to avoid name clashes
