If you want, but we will loose consistency in between the different
slot computation functions.

After thinking about it, this case doesn't work at all. It's working
for cypress devices only because we are not using the default slot
retrieval function.
This device sends contactid=0 when the touch is not in range, and
starts for the in range touches at 0 too. The MT_CLS_CYPRESS saved us
here, but it won't save other devices.

Will do this way, but it might implies another patch for generaltouch
devices as I don't know if inrange or confidence is used.

I'll look into it but I promise nothing.
