Yes, is not going to work with just 4.0, I tested with today's -next.

The atmel_mxt error message is somehow misleading. The problem is not
that the T9 multitouch object is missing (in fact that's the only one
supported by the driver in 4.0) but that the atmel chip in the pixel2
uses another multitouch object (T100).

So the driver tries to initialize the input device assuming that is a
T9 one and fails showing the "Invalid object type T9" error.

Patches to add proper T100 support are already in Linus' tree but did
not make it to 4.0. So you need to cherry-pick commits:

b23157dc7427 ("Input: atmel_mxt_ts - implement support for T100 touch object") [0]
b6d2d3289f84 ("Input: atmel_mxt_ts - split out touchpad initialisation logic") [1].

Dmitry mentioned that he used a 4.0+ kernel with Fedora's config so I
guess he also was testing with linux-next or latest Linus' master.
