SubjectRe: [PATCH 00/25] Support of Nexio 42" and new default class for hid-multitouch

Thanks for the patches.

Problematic device, but I think we should add a new event function
which gives all values at the same time, since those are already
present in the core. It seems this will solve the current problem as
well as many older workarounds.

This is a nice observation. IIRC, we used to rely more on contact
count in the old drivers.

Great tool, thank you Benjamin.

Old wisdom says differently. ;-)
