Subject[PATCH 2/2] input: Add a detailed multi-touch finger data report protocol (rev2)
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 sends a SYN_MT_REPORT event via the input_mt_sync() function
when a complete 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. In addition, all finger data must bypass input filtering,
since subsequent events of the same type refer to different fingers.

A set of ABS_MT events with the desired properties are defined. The
events are divided into categories, to allow for partial implementation.
The minimum set consists of ABS_MT_TOUCH_MAJOR, ABS_MT_POSITION_X and
ABS_MT_POSITION_Y, which allows for multiple fingers to be tracked.
If the device supports it, the ABS_MT_WIDTH_MAJOR may be used to provide
the size of the approaching finger. Anisotropy and direction may be
specified with ABS_MT_TOUCH_MINOR, ABS_MT_WIDTH_MINOR and
ABS_MT_ORIENTATION. Devices with more granular information may specify
general shapes as blobs, i.e., as a sequence of rectangular shapes
grouped together by a ABS_MT_BLOB_ID. Finally, the ABS_MT_TOOL_TYPE
may be used to specify whether the touching tool is a finger or a pen.
