Actually, there is one more point :), without this patch, the driver won't
work on our platforms.

The tsc2007_soft_irq will keep reading the input data unless there is no
valid pressure data. In our case, those noise data will be seen as valid
data during tsc2007_calculate_pressure(), and the tsc2007_soft_irq will
run endlessly.
