    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.
