True, you were only copied in on the patch specific to
hid-multitouch. The core changes will naturally be used for some other
drivers as well.

More comments on those plans, agreed. The "frame thing" is really only
an input core change; it can most likely be better explained as well,
but it really should not matter to drivers.

No, input_mt_report_slot_state() is a driver api function with side
effects which are not desired here.

You are right, and they are not. Will fix.

Thanks,
