That is not a new failure. It actually warns users that they trying to
specify in DT something that will be ignored by the kernel (because
without that absbit kernel will ignore all requests to that event code).

Yes. I am not sure if we should care and support all permutations (ah, I
pre-setup fuzz in the driver, but override max on X, and I pre-setup
max on X, but take fuzz from DT). Maybe we should simply document that
specifying one parameter for an axis will change the rest of them to be
0. Not sure though...
