SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/4] Touchscreen performance related fixes
Hello Vignesh,

I tried your patch version 3 on a customized board and had some
behavior I couldn't explain.
If I only use the touchscreen it works fine but if I also read values
from the ADCs then I get a lot of pen_up events even if I am still
touching the screen.
For the test I read via
# cat /sys/bus/iio/devices/iio\:device0/in_voltage5_raw
values from the ADC in an busy loop as you explained in an email
before. Did you also experience such behavior or do you know what
causes it?

Without the patches the touchscreen works fine during the iio test.
