Cool.

Perfect.

This assumption is not nice. It should instead rely on input_sync() /
EV_SYN, SYN_REPORT events for complete packet decoding. Can you do
something about that?

By the way, obviously you're skilled in X driver programming. Could you
possibly also implement an /dev/input/event mouse and tablet/touchscreen
drivers so that mousedev.c would be replaced completely?
