Makes sense. I'll do that.

Yeah, I'm not sure about this one. Tracking ID could effectively have
any range. All of the MT Protocol A touch screen drivers I have
looked at, assuming they report tracking ids at all, report a
reasonable upper bound on the contact points they support.

Originally, I set an arbitrary maximum bound of 20 slots. In the
interests of keeping it simple, I decided to remove that bound when I
submitted the patch for review here.

How about:

dev->absinfo[ABS_MT_TRACKING_ID].maximum -
dev->absinfo[ABS_MT_TRACKING_ID].minimum + 1);

Where MAX_MT_SLOTS_TO_INFER_FROM_TRACKING_ID_RANGE is set to 32 or something.

There's also the question of how many slots we should infer when
neither ABS_MT_SLOT or ABS_MT_TRACKING_ID is available. The drivers
I've seen that don't provide tracking ids, are very basic and tend to
only support 2 touch points.

I guess we could add a DEFAULT_NUMBER_OF_MT_SLOTS constant to handle that case.

Please feel free to suggest better names for these constants.
