I do not think this is the direction I want to go. Even though the
default size of the input devices (thanks to your work) is half of what
it is used to be I do not think we should be assing such anonymous event
types. How about creating separate vent devices that would report
ABS_PRESSURE for these?  Obviously you need userspace to understand such
compound device, the same as with new ABS_PAD* types.

I guess we need to increase numer of available event devices from 32 to
something larger (dynamic dev_t?) first...

Thanks.

Hi Dmitry,

Sorry for the long delay.

Hmm, I really don't know. As I mentioned before, the names for the
input controls my driver uses doesn't quite reflect the actual usage, or
the silk screen printed on the buttons of the devices, repectively.

So I tend to just use axes as anonymous indexes and assume the userspace
will map that to an appropriate function. And with this approach, I
actually do have enough address space available already.

I just considered adding these extra types for clearer definition of
what the do, but I agreee - it's actually quite some hazzle and the
impact to the userspace layer does not actually justify that.


Thanks,
Daniel
