Perhaps this modification makes it clearer?

Drivers for type A devices separate contact packets by calling
input_mt_sync() at the end of each packet. This generates a SYN_MT_REPORT
event, which instructs the receiver to accept the data for the current
contact and prepare to receive another.

Drivers for type B devices separate contact packets by calling
input_mt_slot(), with a slot as argument, at the beginning of each packet.
This generates an ABS_MT_SLOT event, which instructs the receiver to
prepare for updates of the given slot.

How about this line instead?

All drivers mark the end of a multi-touch transfer by calling the usual

Changed, thanks.
