Thank you for this driver. Some scattered comments on the MT parts below.

The in-kernel rmi interface seems to expect the number of touches to be returned
here, but it does not seem to be used anywhere. Would it not be more useful to
return zero on success, and error codes on failure?

Bailing out without finishing off the input packet...

The tracking id used here is not entirely proper, since the id seems to be
reused too often.

Does the position in the finger array (0..fn11FingersSupported) really track an
identified contact, as suggested by the code? If so, a proper tracking id could
be formed by keeping an id per position, and assigning a new id when the
fingerStatus changes for that position.

input_sync() should always be called at the end, regardless. If nothing changed,
the input core will filter it out.
