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?
