We should probably update this comment and remove parts that mention
stationary and movement. It appears to be doing finger tracking and
first packet is always first touch... except we are getting reports
that clickpads/integrated button pads may not be consistently like
this.

This tracking is partly why type B protocol is being used in later patches.
