    Subject[PATCH] input: Add a detailed multi-touch finger data report protocol
    In order to utilize the full power of the new multi-touch devices, a
    way to report detailed finger data to user space is needed. This patch
    adds a multi-touch (MT) protocol which allows drivers to report details
    for an arbitrary number of fingers.


    The driver presses this button to indicate the start of a packet of
    finger data. The button is released after the whole packet has been


    The driver presses this button to indicate the start of a new
    finger. The button is released when the finger has been reported.

    In order to stay compatible with existing applications, the data
    reported in a finger packet must not be recognized as single-touch
    events. Therefore, a specific set of ABS_MT events is used instead.
