The default behavior in the "new" input_mt_init_slots(), i.e. with the
zero flags argument added to all the drivers, is exactly the same as
before. No further changes are necessary.

Yes, some drivers could definitely start using some of the flags to
good advantage, but there is no rush to make that happen. Such changes
would of course involve the driver maintainers.

Thank you, the best is definitely if you want to do it yourself. Let's
just see where the latency-related work takes us first, since it might
affect how to send data from drivers.

Yes, but as is apparent from the code, the semantics of that variable
is not to count the number of frames since the dawn of times, but to
keep track of changes per frame.

Thanks,
Henrik
