[PATCH 4.4 58/88] Input: restore EV_ABS ABS_RESERVED




4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

[ Upstream commit c201e3808e0e4be9b98d192802085a9f491bd80c ]

ABS_RESERVED was added in d9ca1c990a7 and accidentally removed as part of
ffe0e7cf290f5c9 when the high-resolution scrolling code was removed.
