SubjectRe: [PATCH] psmouse: added BYD touchpad driver
From
Hi Chris,

Reporting absolute position allows the synaptics and libinput xorg
drivers to treat the BYD touchpad as a touchpad, rather than a mouse.
This allows edge scrolling, tap to click, natural scrolling and any
other location based single touch gesture to work.

I opted to completely disable the hardware multitouch gesture
recognition (including two finger scroll) for a couple of reasons:

1. time delta between gesture packets was very large resulting in a
rather jerky scrolling experience, especially compared to touchpad
with real multitouch reporting.
2. Reporting absolute position and touch support enables the users to
configure the touchpad in the touchpad settings section of gnome,
cinnamon, etc because those applets configure synaptics and libinput.
Otherwise xorg thinks it's just a mouse.
3. Enabling multitouch gesture recognition results in the mouse
cursor freezing up when the user uses two fingers, one to move the
mouse cursor and another to click. This is because movement packets
stop getting sent while a gesture (such as pinch, rotate, etc) is
being detected and/or reported. Disabling all hardware gesture
detection, including two finger scroll, provides the most fluid user
experience.

Regarding serio_pause_rx(), I was following a pattern similar to
another touchpad driver in psmouse. That whole callback mechanism is
required to report the touch had ended, since the BYD hardware only
sends packets when a touch is occurring. Is there a better way?

I'll try to rebase and post an updated patch tonight.

best,
Richard
