Subject[PATCH v12 1/5] Input: goodix - add sysfs interface to dump config

Irina, why the requirement for INT/RST gpio pins? The config info is
available by simply reading from the config register (0x8047) and IIUIC
does not require presence of INT/RST pins. So, it can be exported even
without those pins.

Likewise, config writing support currently present in the kernel
(which I believe you are responsible for [thank you!]) also for some
reason mandates presence of INT/RST. However, it is simply done by
writing to the aforementioned config register (0x8047).

I have 2 similar devices (Pipo X8 and X9) with GT911 chips that have
different configs. Neither device has the RST pin defined.

I was able to successfully read the config from one device and
write it to the other. So, it seems the INT/RST requirement is not
necessary for config reading/writing support. Or did I miss something.

Thank you.
