khotkeys is already a kded module, so there won't be no more processes waking

It would, if Qt had a key for XF86XK_TouchpadToggle, as it doesn't i'd need to
introduce a big "ignore all the workflow of kglobalaccel for this special key"
since kglobalaccel only understands Qt keys (see KGlobalAccelImpl::grabKey).
