udev is the service that manages your devices. The command signals to this service that there's been a change to your input subsystem and that it should re-detect things and reconfigure. Rebooting your system should have the same effect.

comment Messed up my hybrid graphics configuration
Manually installing fglrx ruins your OS. tsk tsk. May as well wipe and reinstall. You can try deleting xorg.conf, purging all fglrx, and undoing all edits.
