Yes that's what it means, and that's bad in a HR timer callback.

The chips are actually compatible (when it comes to the touchscreen functionality).

So you are true, the tsc2007 can be modified, I didn't added support for
the other pins anyway.

Actually I don't have access to any tsc2007, so I can't verify it on the newer chip.
I will go on and propose a patch.
