I meant that some new routines require individual MT drivers to be
updated to adapt to the new implementation.

For example, the new input_mt_init_slots() takes care of the
__set_bit() functions in one place. That is great. But, it requires
wacom_wac.c to be updated since it has an interface change. I guess
there are other drivers calling input_mt_init_slots as well.

I was wondering if you plan to update all drivers after this patchset
is accepted or if you need us to chime in.

From what I see, frame/mt is only initialized when driver starts.
Frame will be increased by MT events while the driver running. If this
is true, won't it be possible the value gets too large?

I might have missed a detail about frame somewhere in the patchset.
