Subject[PATCH] input: API for Setting a Timestamp from a Driver
From
Currently, evdev stamps time with timestamps acquired in
evdev_events. However, this timestamping may not be accurate in terms of
measuring when the actual event happened. This API allows any 3rd party
driver to be able to call input_set_timestamp, and provide a timestamp
that can be utilized in order to provide a more accurate sense of time
for the event
