ok.

Thanks. I suggest to add this in the patch description:

While this patch changes the values reported to userspace,
ABS_PRESSURE is used rarely by userspace. Most software only
relies on BTN_TOUCH (boolean), which is not affected by this
patch. Some graphics software makes use of the interface and
does not work correctly with the currently used inverted
behaviour.
