Hello all,

I tried adding coolie hat support to Hatari and found out that neither
my Xbox 360 pads nor Ouya controllers connected through a Bluetooth
dongle map their D-Pads as the coolie hat.

In both cases the D-Pad is avaialble as buttons for which a generic
mapping solution is hard to implement.

I'm stuck there by now. It is quite sad as many games handle better
with a D-pad than an analogue stick.
