SubjectRe: [PATCH 4/5] input: Introduce MT_CENTER_X and MT_CENTER_Y
Hi Benjamin, Stephane,

I would like a bit of elaboration here, since I am not convinced the
mapping should be directly translated to the MT protocol.

Clearly, the basic idea to be able to model an assymmetric tool is
good. Without an angle description, however, there seems to be a
mismatch in the degrees of freedom. In win8, one can place the hot
spot in a corner of the rectangle, but one cannot make the rectangle
into an ellipse in that direction. In linux, one can put the ellipse
in the wanted direction, but the hot spot is always in the center. To
first order, both models allow for finger-rotation information, but in
different ways. Adding more parameters requires a bit more
thought. Perhaps one should use the newly found win8 parameters to
reshape the pointing ellipse to start with.
Thanks,
Henrik
