Tommi Rantala and whot Fix names for EV_SYN events
We had the wrong pointer in the names[] array for EV_SYN, so for example
codename() would print "EV_SYN" instead of "SYN_REPORT", or "EV_ABS"
instead of "SYN_DROPPED", etc.

Output from 1.31:
  Event: time 1425470463.069381, -------------- SYN_REPORT ------------

Output from 1.32:
  Event: time 1425470948.149794, -------------- EV_SYN ------------

Output after this patch:
  Event: time 1425471209.159696, -------------- SYN_REPORT ------------

Summary
=======
evtest is a tool to print evdev kernel events. It reads directly from the
kernel device and prints a device description and the events with the value
and the symbolic name.

Usage:
   evtest /dev/input/event0

Note: in most cases evtest needs to run as root to be able to read the
devices.

For more information, see the evtest(1) man page.
