Subject: Re: [PATCH 01/01] Input multitouch: fix horizontal
 two-finger-scrolling on Sentelic touchpads

From: Christophe TORDEUX <>

Apply the following change to the Sentelic touchpad driver:
report only the position of the first finger as absolute non-MT 
coordinates, instead of reporting both fingers alternatively. Actual MT 
events are unaffected.

Signed-off-by: Christophe TORDEUX <>

This is a much simpler version of my patch. Basically, it makes little 
sense to report both fingers alternatively, as long as it's non-MT 
events. With this approach, storing coordinates of the previously 
reported touch is not necessary. This patch is against kernel version 
3.7. Works with a touchpad version STL3888_C0, very probably works on 
all later version, and very probably does not impact any earlier 
version. This patch has two effects:
1) fix horizontal and improve vertical scrolling, though maybe in a
coincidental way and 2) work towards making the non-MT absolute events
a purely legacy single finger fallback mode, without breaking anything.
