    Hi Jiri,

    It would be helpful to know which ones are currently. Obviously we can't
    help with physically broken ones but I don't believe it is kernel's task
    to deal with physically broken hardware. The ones that are not
    physically broken - PS/2 should have fairly decent hardware emulation
    mode (at least all I tried supported tap and trag while working as
    regular PS/2 mouse) - so that can be used while we figuring out native
    protocol. USB - appletouch, bcm - are there any issues at the moment?
