Oh, I missed that. Good point.

I think it's a combination of everything: sometimes the board misses
the capability to not do IRQs for that device, and using properties
would be better here: you can define them where you need (board,
platform or device level), and have a working platfrom from the kernel
description entirely.
However, it doesn't solve the issue of input-polldev, so maybe
properties should be added on top of this sysfs.

Fair enough.

Could you add a comment there explaining this choice? I have a feeling
you'll have to refuse a few patches of people running coccinelle
scripts and be too happy to send a kernel patch.

Other than that:
