Competition Pro

I repaired my second Competition Pro (german article) joystick from the old Amiga days. It works remarkably well with the linux db9-driver:
$ jstest /dev/input/js0 
Driver version is 2.1.0.
Joystick (Multisystem joystick (2 fire)) has 2 axes (X, Y)
and 2 buttons (Trigger, ThumbBtn).
Testing ... (interrupt to exit)
Axes:  0:     0  1:     0 Buttons:  0:off  1:off
This one now has two buttons: I had to repair the broken cable, removed the auto-fire electronics and then just rewired the small triangle buttons to fire2. (not-so-recently).
