    Yes, please.

    In case you'd be looking into a bit less bloated example of how transport
    driver for HID subsystem looks like, see the Bluetooth one in
    net/bluetooth/hidp/ (and we don't currently have any other examples than
    these two :) ).

    I'd be happy to merge it once you convert to to proper HID transport

    Could the event processing part then be integrated into hid-multitouch?
