Fixed bug 2823 - Release events for triggers receive wrong centered v…

I have been using SDL 2 for a little project that I have been developing for a while. My project is called antimicro and it takes gamepad input and then translates gamepad events into keyboard and mouse events. SDL is used to read the input from an XInput gamepad and it works great for the most part. However, there is one glaring problem that I have encountered.

When a device is unplugged and SDL sends the centered value release events for all axes, buttons, and hats, SDL does not use the proper centered value for the triggers. It pushes an SDL_JOYAXISMOTION event onto the queue with a value of 0 for all axes. That value is converted to around 16,000 for a Game Controller. That value is incorrect for triggers and, in my program, that causes any bindings that are assigned to the triggers to get activated. With most profiles, that will typically mean that a mouse right click and left click will be activated before the device is finally seen as removed and then those bindings are released by antimicro.
