Haha, I know what you are thinking :).

Maybe I didn't make my point clear. I didn't mean to make SLOT
backward compatible. I meant to replace SYN_MT_REPORT event with the
ABS_MT_ RANDOM label so we only sync the whole packet once at the end.
This way both types of MT_ data follow the same input event reporting
flow....
SLOT and RANDOM are both needed since they deal with two different
types of MT data, filtered (type B) and unfiltered (type A). There is
no midunderstanding there.
