The driver is intended for the EDT "polytouch" family touches, which are
based on a focaltec controller. The current line of touches uses e.g.
the ft5306 as well as the ft5406 focaltec controller.

I chose the driver name since I wanted to differentiate from other EDT
touches, which used a different controller. With hindsight it was
unfortunately confusing, since I get quite some request from people, who
also have a device based on the focaltec controllers, but with a very
different firmware (and communication protocol). They got tricked into
thinking that this driver would be suitable...

If I were to chose the name again I'd probably pick "edt-polytouch" or
something like this. But I doubt that it is useful to change the name now.

Bye,
        Simon
