If I understood correctly you want to implement auto-calibration, and in
order to do that you need the four extra registers, not mentioned in the
Focaltech datasheet. Right?

What about all the other registers? The datasheet lists a few dozen, not
only 0x80. Are they implemented in the panel you are working on?

Since everything is based on the programmed firmware, and there's no
"standard" way to detect firmware version, every firmware detection is
bound to be a hack. But there's no better way I'm afraid. Thus device
tree seems the only reliable way...

However, did you check registers FIRMID, FT5201ID (CTPM Vendor ID) and
ID_G_LIB_VERSION_H/L? According to their name they might hold
interesting info.

And did you consider read the "additional registers" tentatively during
probe to detect whether they are present? What effect would this have on
chips without those registers?

Bye,
