    The lifebook touchscreen has some extensions to the standard protocol:

    0xe8 0x06: Stop absolute coordinate output
    0xe8 0x07: Start absolute coordinate outpout (3-byte packets)
    0xe8 0x08: Start absolute coord. output with 6-byte packets

    I dont't know the PS2-specs. But I know the lifebook hardware quite
    well. While implementing my driver (for xfree 4.0 at that time) I
    noticed that it happens often that the device came back with an error or
    resend. I fixed this by just waiting a short time and then retry.

    If you agree I will take your patch as the basis and make it work. Now I
    know how you want it to look like.

    I think this was the kick in the ass I needed ;-)

    Yeah -- OK. PS2...
