Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 08/10] Input: elan_i2c - export true width/height

We do still use a maxed out major axis as a signal for a palm in the touchscreen
logic, but I'm not too concerned because if that axis is maxed out, the contact
should probably be treated as a palm anyway...

I'm more concerned with this affecting our gesture detection for
touchpad. It looks
like this change would cause all contacts to reported as some percentage bigger
than they are currently. Can you give me an idea of how big that percentage is?

And given that we might have 2 different resolutions, we would need to do some computation in the kernel to ensure the data is correct with respect to the resolution.
